Since I write poetry a lot! I feel the need to publish this one written after feeling blue because I was ignored by my adult children on my birthday.
Mom’s Are People Too!
Once I was a mom but now I am alone.
Unlike “Cat’s in the Cradle” they never telephone.
I spend my time just working, trying to fill the space
created by their exodus, I’m praying for God’s grace.
I know I can’t turn back the clock, I wouldn’t even try.
But moms are really people too, sometimes we even cry.
