Sitting and Waiting

You don’t just think about bad things.
You ignore all the wires and paraphernalia
And focus on the part of your loved one
Still present in the midst of all the pain.
You don’t worry about the anger and division
All you can think is how much time is left?
You wish your mom could do all the things she used to do
To comfort you. Now you have to comfort her.
The relationship is more pure and loving
Than it has been since you were a newborn.
No anger could escape so much love.

I'm a Southern girl at heart who wants to build a community of people who believe they can change the world with words like "love" and "freedom" when they become more than words, but actions in our work and our daily lives.

    Have been there with my mom and you are so right. I used to sing “You are my sunshine” to my son all the time. Still do actually. A touching, human and honest post.
