An intrusive change has convened
A lost key is not all that has intervened
Forced into a constant dizzy haze
I can’t wait to pass this outrageous phase!
Sincerely the change can wreak havoc on a womans life! My mother always spoke about how hard it was, but never in detail. This is when I most wish she were alive. So I could apologize for not being more compassionate as a teen. Now I understand why she was up at four, or until four A.M.reading at the table, why she was so crabby living on short intervals of sleep. Why she was less tolerant, and slower to compute things. I wish I knew then what I know now, so I could just say sorry mom, I didn't get it!
I wish she were alive so I could compare the experience, ask her those details she never shared, have her comfort me by saying, " this too shall pass!" Today I miss you mom!
I think of her on a frequent basis.
Never knowing someday I’d understand
And be even more open to forgiveness!
