A poem, by Janet Church


At 80 I look in the mirror.

I see my mothers face.

She will never answer my questions now.

She put me off before she died.

"You never listen," she said.

In my own face I see the answers

I never wanted to hear.

But I have forgotten the questions.

Thanks for stopping by!
