What Mother Would Say?

My parents and I - circa 1969

"Has it really been twenty-five years? I've watched you grow from the heavens. Oh, how I've enjoyed it. You make my heart smile. I cry for you too. I know you want to be with me, but not now, son. Not now."

Great submission! Your mother's voice is loving and warm. I think she's probably really saying that :)

That's a comforting thought.

I loved the voice you created and the idea of her watching over him in heaven. It caught my heart. My mom died when I was 24. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her and wonder if she can see how I am doing. This is great...really tugs the ole heartstrings.

What a sweet thing to daydream about, no? Nice response.

Thank you everyone, I really appreciate the feedback. Today my mother would have turned 80 years old. R.I.P.
