Mom's Smiles (Just awarded an International contest GOLD

Mom’s Smiles
Very sentimental poetry
I recall my mom’s last eyes
no tears

Smiles as she passed by
tears did not then come into my eyes I too smiled
then it rained all day and night
mom’s smiles went away
now I thirst for those looks till today
as she passed away

it rains till today
nearly five decades away
she still smiles daily at me
I my mom can see
smiling with me

It does no longer rain
now it only snows
heaven knows
when she calls out to me
when are you coming

I smile back and ask
are you still waiting for me

will wait for as long as it takes. You came into this world with her, and you will go out and meet her. ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

she has been waiting since 50 years plus now
