what have you found
that gives you no doubts

is it the the nursery rhymes
your mother
used to read to you
or rather
the bouncy sing song
of her lilac voice

her sweet smell
and I love you eyes

how she left
the night light on
to frighten the boogeyman
away…

well
enough of that
now you’re grown
and she is gone
you become her
and she becomes…

the hope
that some way, some how
she is somewhere
making snow angels

and all this
caught in between
pouncing ice pellets
and slick freezing rain
where there are no spaces to
take cover

is just
what is falling
from the grace
of her calling you…
home

there is no shelter
from a storm
that rages within

realization is easy
acceptance…
a slow process

but you
and your faith
sustain you

we are all so fragile
I fall apart

what have you found
that gives you no doubts
