Mom

Mom

Her eyes wandered lonely and void,

The skin was wrought and dry.

She spoke less and looked beyond,

Before her heart leapt at the smallest sound.

 

I watched her from afar.

I knew her wait,

As she kept staring at the gate.

The last bus that passed had got no news.

 

Your son is on his way, I wanted to say,

But I kept mum – what if he chose to delay?

Moments turn into hours, hours into days

This wait is one that’s not be swayed.

 

Come hither,

Come now.

Oh son!

Your mom just sang your vow.
