One Cockadoodle Do Is All I Need To Hear

To Know And Believe

Mom I can feel you in my heart

You are here

With age comes wisdom and knowledge

Also experience

When we put all three together what do you get ?

More questions and a lot less answers

There is also the great unknown

Mysteries of life that may go unsolved but never forgotten

When certain things happen in my day and there is no good reasoning or scientific explanation for

I don't leave it up to chance or coincidence

I believe in miracles and the impossible

I gave my mom an alarm clock that crows on the hour

She loved it and we use to joke about it often

Now it is one of the things I still have that reminds me of her

With life so busy I tucked it away in a spare room

I thought the batteries had died and I haven't heard it in months

I was in my kitchen and looking out the window thinking of her

Guess what I heard ?

The sound that brought chills up and down my spine

Now a loving feeling through out my body

Need I say more

I am writing as I would do

Then I would pick up my phone to call you

Ask you how was your day

What's new from yesterday the last time we talked

We both would say

The same thing here

At the same time

I would tell her to make something up

Then I could turn It into a story

She would remind me that her day was nothing exciting and even to go as far to say boring

Some day you will understand

I would laugh and say let me be the judge of that

A writer can take the obvious and make it exciting

The boring and make it compelling

He can also feel each word as they appear on paper

Only with one goal in mind to make people think

Life is so much more than what we see

It is all I ever want and need

Life is everything we believe

Sparklea There is so much I have to think and say about my mom I am at a loss for words. When the mood strikes I go with it and see where it takes me. When my dad passed I kept those feelings locked away as if it was the right thing to do. Spending as much time with my mom as possible knowing this day would come. No way of preparing or changing it.Just learning to accept it and how my life changed.I appreciate your comments and you following me.Have a beautiful night.
