Poem: Farewell

Updated: May 31, 2021


The day my mother died

I skunked into bed, hid under the sheets

Waiting, knowing 


The day my mother died

I cried and cried

Not aloud but in my head

Waiting, knowing


The day my mother died

I switched off my phone

Silenced the despair

Waiting, knowing


The day my mother died

I lay and let it happen

Waiting, knowing

That it would 


The day my mother died

I imagined

How she would end her life

Because I had shut her out 


The day my mother died

I imagined

How my life might now be like 

Because I had set my own soul free
