she breathes

I miss you.....

her head gently rested in my lap
with her closed eyes she looked at me
her face…so divine
soft cheeks
gentle smile
her long hair flowed so well
her persona …by God
one look…and she is special one could tell

her head…that would nod no more
the eyes…that would no longer lovingly look
her face…for ever etched in my mind
her smile….that would liven me from miles
as she lay
in my lap
her hand in my hands clasp
i cried and smiled both at once
funny these emotions
they set so many thoughts in motion

in peace…she stepped ahead
no more…the worries of the daily bread
with love…she departed
and in me…..the poet she imparted

my mother…
though officially dead….still lives
in my words
in my deeds
…………..she breathes

….the unicorn
