Mom

A melody, she moved among us
Murmuring lullabies in infant ears
Weaving music into childhood dreams
Making harmonies of discordant teen angst
Humming the score of our life symphonies…

I sway to the rhythm of her music even yet
Humming fragments from memory
Filling in lost notes.
But it’s a poor song at best
Without her voice.
