Ode to my Mother

Document

I wish, I wish


Oh how I wish


my mother's will was mine.


I wish, you see,


a tiny dream,


to own a land divine.


With sea and fish,


a fleeting kiss,


will lock my destiny.


So I wake,


and now I take


my mother to the sea.


From lapping brine,


her will is mine.


A curse - I sigh.


Oh why did I yearn so heavily?


I wish my mother,


oh dear mother,


will rest so peacefully.


Out there coasting,


never floating,


through a tideless sea.


Though now I ache.


Would my mistake


call her home to me?


Again I wake,


to claim and take


my mother's soul for my escape.
