When I woke that morning
And stepped onto the living room floor
I heard the sound of a heavy weeping
And the sober melody
Of an old song of yore:

An old folk number
Composed decades before
I walked this earth
Seeking it’s parts.

I saw my mother sitting there
In a recently gifted reclining chair.
With tears shimmering in her eyes
And running down her now slightly wrinkled face.

There those eyes sat fixated
On a painting of a garden on the wall
That to her was “The Garden”
As it beckoned her to smell it’s flowers
And admire it’s skies.

She sat there mourning
Old aunt and uncle
Mother and grandfather
As she pictured them
Walking through the grass
Where she hoped to join them
But couldn’t allow herself the pleasure.

And so she wept in a new house,
In a new chair,
With new life all round her
As she walked down an old road
With an old song on her mind.
The road that ends with the garden.

Wow. I mean, thank you. It means a lot to me that you or anyone could think that about something I've written.

No way.  Like, it might be good and all, but I can't see that.

Lacey, that's extremely flattering. Not likely though.
