The thunder sounds

In the night quiet

I hear the footsteps

The kids seeking me.

 

I used to be them

Running to Mom

Seeking security

In the midst of a storm.

 

Now I am an adult.

There is no one

To seek out in a storm.

There is no more security.

That’s my name; don’t wear it out.

I try to write a poem.

I try to think a thought.

But all i get out of my head

are interrupted spots.

.

My mind cannot complete

Mommy!

a single, solid thought.

MOMMY!

My mind cannot compete.

Mooommmmmy!

It’s tired, overwrought.

.

Mom! is all i hear,

and Mom! is all they say,

and Mom! is reverberating

deep within my brain.

.

I put away my pen.

I set aside my poem.

‘Cause both will be there

another day

when all my kids are grown.

.

And no one will call “Mommy!”

And no one will need help.

There will be no more fights to handle

and no more yells or shouts.

.

The house it will be empty,

and sadly, i’ll be alone.

And in that peace and quiet

maybe then i’ll write a poem.

.
