Mother

Breathe, sometimes it is hard to breathe.

Breathe, why can't time stop, so I can breathe.

Breathe, I wish, I could turn time, to breathe.

Breathe, I wish, I could hold my mom, and breathe.

Breathe, one chance, only one chance, to breathe.

Breathe, to hold her and smile, and breathe.

Writer's Note: Composed Nov. 18, 2012 For my cousin who misses her mom, who died too early in life. When life is so tough, sometimes, you wish your mom is there to embrace you, to talk to, and give that needed smile.
