MAMA'S FACE

beautiful, auburn haired young woman in a rose garden, smelling a pink rose.

MAMA'S FACE


 I saw Mama’s face tonight in the setting sun

the red streaks of her hair flowing across the sky

and felt her kiss me gently on my cheek

 and heard her say I love you son


Was it the wind which brought the chills?

Just air current brushing my cheek?

My own hair was standing out on my neck

as my heart thumped loud enough to hear


My horse and I both spooked

at the same time and I just know

we weren’t alone in the meadow tonight

I tried to sleep but couldn’t


I never cried before

not since I grew up anyway and must say

I was glad there were no eye witnesses

to stand and gawk and spread rumors later


I’m as sane as sane can be

and I know Mama’s here with me

looking young and pretty as when I was a kid

And it doesn’t matter that I’m eighty three


Why did you come, Mama?

Why am I suddenly filled with peace?

All my cares are drifting far away

blurring into pink streaks of evening sky

mother and young son hugging
