Poem -

one cold night

one cold night

Silence accompanied the night sky
Nothing but the crackling of fire wood
And the cricket’s tune echoed.
The stars didn’t disappoint
They shined for all creatures to see.

Although it was cold and I was alone
My mind was free from chaos
I lay on the wet grass
And gazed at the most brilliant sky and felt safe.
Just maybe I taught to myself
Just maybe I’m not alone
My mother is amongst the stars
Looking at me
I know she is

My heart then sank a little
At the thought that I will never
Feel her warm embrace again
Tears escaped my eyes

I can’t stop now
I can’t let her down
I’m not alone
I am still my mother’s child
And I will give her a reason
To look down at me and smile
                                    Sarah Harry

Personally some of my best poetry and most enjoyable is storytelling with images that you can see in your head.
As a result, I really enjoyed this, well written!!
PS Your mother would be proud

I'm quite sure that you just being her daughter is more than enough to make your mom smile, Sarah.
In fact, I'm sure she's smiling down at you right this moment as I write this review from her perch on high.
Although I am almost 58 years old, I'm fortunate enough to still have both of my parents amongst the living.
In fact, you've inspired me to go and call my mom right now, while I still can.
It's been awhile...
