Lost One

Another mother mentioned in passing

A reminder of time. Elasticity.

How fate will honour all of us

In his or her inexorable slide away

 

Memories soak in

A torrent of emotions

Break the dam

No flood barrier can catch them

 

The past may become recrimination

Instants of remorse

Tug at the soul

Flag-up the meter of loss

 

But we must live in the here and now

Be proud

Salute the loss

And move on in praise of love
