A Poem for Mother

From the book of poems I gave my mother for Christmas 2004

One moment with my mother
stretching back through the years
to touch me in my tenderness
to know me for the first time

One moment together
her eyes so willing to see me
so willing to see herself
through corrective lenses - bifocal

One moment with my mother
perhaps one moment more
as we each seek forgiveness
in each other.
