Six Word Friday: kept

Dear Mama, I wish you knew

that you are kept safe, warm

in the chambers of my heart.

Dear Mama, I wish you knew,

as I am starting to learn,

that you were enough. More than.

Dear Mama, I wish you could

have kept them at bay again.

Like you had managed to before.

Dear Mama, I hope you know

how very much you are missed

and loved.                               

and loved.

                             and missed.

I’ve kept you long enough. Go see MELISSA for more six word fun.

    Oh wow, this made me very very sad. I think I know what you were alluding to, and it touched a little close to home. Oh, sad!
