Happy Birthday to my remarkable mother – missed every hour of every day.

Worldly Winds









For my Mum…


I looked through the window,

I thought I saw you;

just a hint of a memory

that I wanted to view.


A past life once lived;

a deep memory pain.

I had to control myself

from calling your name.


Her walk was all wrong

and her hair, not the same,

but she had the same clothes

as I saw in my dream.


I followed behind her

and hoped to see

that it really was you

as you used to be.


I knew it was futile

and couldn’t be true;

you’ve been gone these six years,

it couldn’t be you.
