Today is Mother's Day of 2022.
But I cannot spend it with you.
You died over nine years ago.
Love was what you once showed.
Many people celebrate this day.
But in 2013, you passed away.
Mother's Day is what I tolerate.
It's a day that I can't celebrate.
I can't celebrate but I wish I could.
You died and you're gone for good.
You were a great mother and that's true.
If I could, I would tell you that I love you.
[Dedicated to Agnes Greene-Johnson (1948-2013) who passed away on March 6, 2013]
