Happy Mother’s Day, Mum.
You’re in my thoughts this day and every other day.
I send Love and gratitude
to wherever your spirit now resides.
You made it possible for me to be the man I am today.
You remain my moral compass in all things,
our conversation continues.
“I feel your brightness near me.”
From: your son; now a father,
and your granddaughter; as much your legacy as she is mine.
Thinking about you,
i wrote these words
Then I cried,
Rannoch Moor. Alone.
Sweet black heather. Bitter mist
Calling out your name
You shall never fade
I am you as you are me
In death; with me still
A chill North wind blows
Spiralling dead leaves skywards
They return, like me
I seek shelter under tree
Safe from the blast and your “Love”
A sweet memory ago
Love sparkled in your eyes
It lives on, in me
