He loved his mother

She hung the moon

And the stars

She was his all

His everything.

He started and ended

Every day with her

He told her of the weather


His lunch

She had long stopped responding.

Her frail voice gone silent

He didn’t mind

The smile she always gave him

It was enough

It was always enough

He loved his mother

He would never be able to part with her

Even when the bugs and the earth

Tried to take her back

He couldn’t let her go.

Could never let her go.

He loved his mother
