Mom's Rebirthday

Twenty five years ago today

Mom lay down for a nap and she

Never

Woke

Up

Twenty five years ago today

My world was ripped apart and I

Never

Was

The

Same

Again

Twenty five years ago today I

Began my life as a motherless daughter

Began grieving the greatest loss of my life

Start looking at who I was

Started on a path that would take me

Twenty five years before I would find myself:

Who I was

Who I am

Who I can be

They say that the more difficult the relationship, the more

Difficult

And

Prolonged

The

Grief

I have found this to be true.

And now, on my mother's

Twenty fifth rebirthday,

I'm ready to grieve anew.
