Never good enough

You always pounced on me

Ever the preacher

You became so ill

I don't know who you are

Ever attending

Daily concerned

Please know who I am Mama

Sometimes you know me

The struggle is long

The battle it is ever

Daily facing death

Mother daughter talks

Process … being orphaned

A daughter survives

Today I cry tears

I want us to go shopping

Hospice care prevails

Words so few we share

I close the door and venture

Cycle continues
