Before I Stand

The trip alone was mine to see
That time slipped by, slipped right by me
Too long it was, since last with you
Alone my heart with yours made two

Flowers were brought to give to you
Love in hands that needed to
Hold once again you mom who knew
My sentiment and tears that fell
Before your place this write shall tell

A quiet place where I stood by
Again with you and deepest sighs
Became again of your first son
Became of me beneath Springs Sun

I placed flowers in plastic vase
Believe   you're in a better place

No more pain and pills to take
No more tests abruptly wake
You who sought much rest these things
Upon body, much suffering

Alone I stood before your stone
That read of time of here once home
With picture yours of younger days
Your beauty strummed, on heart strings played

Missing all you left behind
Of breakfast spreads with you I dined
In kitchen yours no better time
When time was mine with you called mine

Alone I stood before your plot
Seeking comfort of missed a lot
The scent of you where I could touch
Your face so soft, I miss so much

It was our time so long overdue
So long since I was last with you
Alone with thoughts, so many too

I read something I wrote for you
A simple write that Gods love drew
Upon my heart to share this day
With sentiment all yours I'd say

That part of me was yours instilled
Before your time was here fulfilled
This part of me that overwhelms
My heart and soul this story tells

Oh mom, my visit here before your grave
Ends with sadness, my eyes display
These parts of you in life that stayed
Inside of me, words cannot say

Before I stand I sit to rest
Upon your bench as time does test
My soul that wears your soul in mine
Upon my heart birthed by life's line

Before I stand, I'll take with me
A dose of you so I can free
My weighed down heart of you not here
Knowing that you, live on mom dear

Happy Mother's day in Heaven mom, your loving son
