                             Turning Into Mom

I hear my mom’s voice many mornings when I roll out of bed, her eyes looking back at me in a mirror, both of us crying a little,

it was our habit to refer back to minutes, weeks, months, or years gone by, when forced to keep doing, as opposed to enjoying each other,

when we sat eye-to-eye, we were estranged, waiting for our bodies to stop hurting, and our minds to stop accusing and excusing,

but now that she is deceased, I try to simplify my twisted feelings by trying to forgive and forget, and remember our anger at the world did not compromise our love for each other.

Joyce,

Beautifully written. Probably more people than would like to admit have skirmishes with their Moms. But in the end, love prevails. I'm sorry about your Mom, I lost mine also six years ago. Seems like yesterday, the pain is still there.
