Lilacs, For You Mom

Lilacs, For You Mom short poem

Photo by ~Sage~

The smell of lilacs in the air
Reminds me of you, mom
And the way you took my palm
And said you would never leave me….
Then on that frightful morning so many years ago
When you were taken from me, before it was your time to go…

These lilacs I picked for you today, Mom
As I laid them upon your grave
My heart is full of sorrows
And worries for tomorrow
Wondering how life is going to be without you, Mom

I sit and rub my palm
As it aches for your lingering touch
As a child you held it tight, in protection
Now my palm is empty as my heart…

For these lilacs are for you, Mom.
