Happy Birthday Mum

Distance feeds upon our minds
Fading memories built from life
Time, a thief of clarity
Taking youth and dignity
Unwound, stilled journey found
Presenting who I’ve become
Goodbye to that little girl
Telling lines, her hands tremble
Gentle pressed into mine, crying
Broken memories un-pieced
Wearing the passage of time
Milky tears mar hugs and cheers
Gift to this woman so dear
Giving wings to her glory
In her seventy-fifth year
