A Mother’s Love Awaits

broken home
weary bones
cancer
another thorn
in my side

a loner
stoner
little signs
the fact that
life
will never be
the same without
you

in my thoughts
in my dreams
I saw you
last night

the glue
that kept everything
together

a decaying hand
around love’s
remains

a blade
not easily
swallowed
by time

I’ve left
a thousand times
since you’ve died
trying
to make things
right

but it never
made a difference
because nowhere
feels like home
without knowing
you’re somewhere
out there

over the rainbow
but at least I know
you’re waiting
wherever you are
for me
