missing our departed Mother

I Wish

Dear Mum I wish I had known you

As a person not as Mum

That I had asked you questions

Like what you did for fun

Or found out about your childhood

What your home was really like

Did you walk to school each day Mum?

Or did you have a bike

Did you search amongst the hedgerows?

Looking at the young birds there

Glancing over grassy fields

To see the boxing Hares

Did you have a love for nature?

That your whole being did excite

Watching green frogs in the daytime

Owls and crickets in the night

It must have come from somewhere

This great love that I have got

For the world around me

Whether it was you Mum or not

I miss you Mum
