Memories For Mother’s Day

five-red-flowers

memories
of caregiving years

how often Mom
asked if I was writing

and I was not much
enough to be with her
and no energy to spare

now those years are over
a decade gone

I listen to music and
think of Mother’s Day soon

her life of literature
and wonder if she
was passing the torch

before I was ready to see

Ellen, today
