A Message From Mum

the days, the days

grow long and stringy

don’t forget to clean

those shoes, 

so sweetie 

that soap I procured

it’s lavender 

and lime

light of my life, 

where went the time


your dad, your dad

has golf on tv 

every night, 

eat corn

sprouts – broccoli 

Ruby loves her 

bouncy ball, 

run around, 

a cuddle…

eleven days without you

not now much to juggle


my heart, my heart

it’s shipped to Madrid


a new recipe

for you to taste, 


simmer for some time

who’s not missing me

love to the moon

don’t forget your keys
