"I am hearing poetry when awake, dreaming poetry when asleep, breathing poetry with each breath, I am living in a poem."

When I Look Into Your Eyes

Where have you gone?
When I look into your eyes
I can’t find you.
The mother I have known
has retreated into the past.
I sit wishing you would return
when you don’t even know
you have left me.

(My mother died in 2007. She had Alzheimer's)
