Mom, I Miss Our Calls

Woman with phone

Mom
our relationship
complicated at times
but mostly just love
Over the years
you got better at saying it
showing me
in a hundred different ways
how much you loved me
Now you're gone
The thing I miss most -
our phone calls
Today I'd call and tell you
We're done!"
Instead, I think it
and know how excited
you'd be for us
Now you live on
in all those remembered spaces
your words
your smile and laughter
your eternal love and support
I miss you, Mom!
And yes we finished the big one
and it looks lovely
