Crushed Rock is about my mom's last days...for her a bit brighter.

When December hardened football fields, before Christmas,
my parent’s address changed. My Dad in shock--
six children--buried the rock of our family.

Devoured by cancer, we watched her wane away;
two years she laid in daze--alert enough
to watch wall clock for nurses appearance and painkillers.

Her youngest daughter, only six, and dressed in red;
ushered via the back staircase. “Beautiful,” Mom said.
She closed both eyes and made us motherless daughters.

whoa....the pain of losing someone in such away
it is a struggle (to say the least)in the reality
of death of such a figure, as mom.
right to the pit this piece went right to the soul
sorry for you and your family lost.........

I read a gentle expression of this mothers last view, and a daughters.

Poem has good rhythm and flowed my comprehension into each new paragraph

She also left her heart in you all. This is sad. I've seen cancer kill whole families before.
"Poor little Rosebud...why did you go? Why did you leave when you loved living so?" This is from a poem of mine dedicated to a friend who died of cancer. Your poem reminded me of her.
