An Early Mother’s Day Gift




Today was a great day for me,
and even greater for my mother.


Not one, not two, but three
times I was given
six months to live


Alcoholic cirrhosis
there is no going back


A son before his mother
Is not the proper order


Doc gave me the beautiful rubber stamp
Certifying, I don't need a transplant


I saw the little girl she still is
When she bit her lip and grinned


She said I looked so thrilled
That I could be dancing.


"Mom, I am twirling and dancing
at the sight of absolute joy.
I won't worry you again
I'm still your little boy."


The years are flying
but I still see the
little girl in her smile.


I Love You, Mom
Everyday is
Mother's Day
