Often


I often think of you

when my roses are in bloom

as I tend my flower beds

if I smell mimosa

when I see magnolias in bloom

I often think of you

when I make a recipe you taught me

if I have your favorite foods

as I use a favorite saying of yours

when I wish I could talk to you

I often think of you

when I eat a fresh tomato sandwich

as I listen to a song you loved

if I see a beautiful arrangement of silk flowers

as the Christmas lights twinkle and shine

I often think of you

when I realize how hard it is to be a parent

as the spring brings new flowers

every time I look inside my heart

Miss you mom….

    This is wonderful! You so got it! Those little moments doing ordinary things that bring the memories crashing back, poignantly and with full force. This is exactly right! Kudos.
