A moment once….

.

I fought hard to get there ~ knowing

time was not on our side.

driving miles of highway

and

sifting through millions of thoughts in my mind.

.

I had to see her,

touch her

and

stroke her soft silver hair ~ feel

the warmth of her breath

and

listen

to the rhythm of her heart.

.

I wanted so much to hold

onto the beauty of her soul ~ wrap

my arms around her tightly ~ ~ ~

never let go……………..

but…

She was present for my sunrise,

I was present for her sunset

and

in between it all ~ we lived

as

mother and daughter.
