I Got Something On My Mind
As a author I express myself through words
If I see something in the news I jot it down in my journal
If I experience a feeling of love, joy, grief whatever I write
I dedicated myself to keep the words flowing until the pen stops
Today I was thinking of my Mother as most know the muse of my writing
Her birthday is approaching and I have mixed feelings of emotion
Its been ten years since she passed and there are times when the tears flow
There are times when I want to call her to tell her what is going on
That recipe that I need that I didn't think to ask for I can't make
No one will ever replace a Mother
Today I played peek a boo with a princess.
A small child dressed in a princess costume wandered away from her Mother
She stood on the other side of my cubicle ,waved, she smiled, she giggled and she played peek a boo with me!
We laughed at each other and there was a feeling of joy yet regret that I didn't have my own child
Someone to carry on my legacy
There isn't someone to call me every week and say I love you Mom like I did with my Mother
I Got Something On My Mind that I have meaning to say
Don't wait for tomorrow because it may never come
Live your life to the fullest
And tell your love ones you love them
See I Got Something On My Mind and she's gone!
