She reached from the grave

For her devotion could not be earthed

Her words were heard like gusts above

Her emotions felt like swallowing gulps

The fading clothes her in closet

Remained unworn and hung

Yet she settles here, sometimes there

She observes and nudges and shields

She could never abscond

Leave the child she adored

She could never say goodbye

She will never say goodbye

Through the heart of the child

Was born a new mom

And through the heart of the mom

Was grown a new love

Her seat is forever empty

Her lipstick rests unused

But her whispers are welcomed

And her hugs alter the air

Selfish for keeping so close

Grasping at what could be lost

Stay here forever

Don’t ever go

I cannot say goodbye

I will never say goodbye
