The Passing of Mother


My bother called in the early morning to say I needed to come now as mom’s breathing was very shallow.  I was 25 mins away, even though she was unresponsive Bobby said I was coming and to hang on.  She took another breath to wait for me.  When I arrived I kissed her held in my arms & with that she smiled with her eyes closed and took her last breath.  Her sons by her side.

A god awful wail comes from the bottom of my soul on her death as there is special love between a son and his mother.
