Poem by Maria Miraglia

 

MUM

I can still see you
your smile of ever
unmistakable

A door opens on the past
and me there
in that house
full of familiar flavors and smells
and you tired at nightfall
sitting in your armchair
the cat wandering around
the lamp at your side
illuminating your face
deep the sense of peace
in those rooms
only broken by laughter
mild and sweet
the scent of the flowers
you loved so much

Evermore I felt safe
with you mum
protected as in a fortress
high and thick its walls
out the world
with all its worries
your loving embrace
the cure for all my pains
