ROSE

  

For my mother, Rose.

 

You’re not here today, but you are with me always.

 Your face is in my mirror.

 I talk to my child in your voice.

 My hands; veined now, are yours. 

I will never stop missing you.

 

Don’t let the bugs bite!

      I’m not sure either Czar, perhaps it was something lost in translation?

  3. Count Czardas says:

    This is at once very personal and yet universal, so well done on that. Nicely emotional and it works very well.

    I would agree with count czardas…although very personal..it is as universal as any poem can be….lovely job!
