Weekend in PA

A fun
weekend across
state lines, taking in a
good show and admiring the
clear day.

Saturday

As I awaken
the springtime sun is glowing,
a weekend promise.

Gown

In three months,
we get married.

I never thought
this would happen,

Yet here I am,
getting my dress

Altered today, after months
of gazing at my gown

In the closet. I'm hoping for
a quick process, but most

Importantly, I look forward
to wearing it in August,

Standing before him as
we declare our love for

Each other.

Raining

Day after day
the rain continues to pour.

A faint glimmer of light
shines through on some days,

Yet it only lasts a few hours
before the darkness resumes.

It reflects the current climate
of the month's tensions in this world;

Unstable, relentless in severity,
limitless.

Mothers Day Weekend

Activity
taking place today
at East Ridgelawn.

Cars line the
parking area as

People bond with loved ones;
at the plot next to Mom's,
a family redecorates

Their matriarch's resting place,
planting lovely florals.

Across the way, some children
run to greet a relative,
their father keeping watch.

I spend a few moments
with Mom, realigning a brick
that slipped out of place.

I say my prayers for her,
and communicate,

Memories taking me back
to my mom's house,
conversing during visits.

Always soft-spoken,
yet listening to every word.

So valuable were those moments;
fleeting, yet precious.

Not Quite Easier

This weekend is filled 
with family gatherings;

Saturday with my loved ones,
Sunday with his. 

This weekend will bring
emotions I would rather
not deal with,

Yet I will be in the company 
of loved ones, instead of
being alone.

I did that six years ago, and 
that was a huge mistake.

Mom is no longer with me,
yet being with loved ones 
help during this time of year.

I still think of her every day,
and wish she was still with me,

As I quietly wait for 
Mothers Day to pass once again.
