I'm Coming Home Mother-Terza Rima

I wonder what you would say
The moment you will see me
Guess you’ll embrace me and cry

I am just thinking how it would be
As soon I enter that familiar door
Surely, you will greet me with glee

I have been from far away shore
Two years was not easy to bear
Without that sweet smile of yours

And so now, I’m almost there
I could imagine your misty eyes
That is, if you were alive, mother

Harder it gets, no matter how I try
Accept that you’re forever gone away

  1. What a beautiful poem...
    I guess... it should be an expression of longing for the beloved mom who was gone forever...
    So touch...

    words from heart.
