Mama, Where are you?
This poem is about when my Mom was in the hospital for a surgery, which then caused a horrific infection in her abdomen; and kept her away from home for several days.
Mama where are you? Your supposed to be here
“I have to go now”, she said.I knew it was clear
that she was so sick, she’d had to be fierce
And when she returned, we had to stay close
She was the one that would need us the most
We thought all was well, and then she went back
She wasn’t getting better and that was a fact
I was scared of losing her my very best friend
She wouldn’t give up, and she didn’t pretend
She was in pain, but fought so hard
But we knew God was holding her heart
I prayed daily, for miracle from God
We missed her so, she was gone for 4 days
And then we got the news she didn’t have to stay!
She’d be back home, within a matter of hours
This whole ordeal was controlled by God’s power
She began to heal, and does to this day.
She spent days on the couch fighting it out
And within two months was up and about
I was a long journey, I have to admit
One so painful we could not predict
The ending, like a book
Was so bitter sweet
I’m thankful to God that she’s up on her feet.
I love you, Mama.
