THE VISIT by Darlene
You walk in her room and say, "hi Mom, it's me." But all she sees is her little boy coming in from play.
You give her a bouquet of lovely flowers, but all she sees is the first bunch of dandelions her dear little boy pick for her one summer day.
You say, "I'm tired Mom", as you wipe a tear from your eye. But all she sees are the precious eyes of the baby you once were.
You give her a kiss and say "I've got to go now Mom", but all she knows is she loves the kiss you always give here before you leave her.
She will try to remember your visit but she never will forget the day her little boy came into her world. He will never go away.
You will never forget this visit because now at last you're sure, you are the little boy Mom has with her and this is fine with you.
Your heart breaks each time you leave her, but now you know she'll be ok, because she has that little boy with her, whose able to stay while you're away.
