Mother’s Day

Incessant beeping
Curled form on an elevated hospital bed
Once beautiful dark hair
grey, listless, stuck to a sweating forehead
Cancer-ridden lungs struggle
I hold her hand, bend and whisper one last time,
“It won’t be long now, mom.
Happy Mother’s Day.
I love you.”

M. Harris, May 11, 2014

    Such a bittersweet poem. Really plucks the heart strings.
