Where Are You?

Marsha Burks Megehee


"That Look" within her eyes,
She hid it from the rest,
Asking me odd questions,
Just senility...I guessed.
Little things betrayed a truth
My heart refused to hear.
My mother was leaving me.
As I watched her disappear.
It wasn't quick or painless,
Four years of long goodbyes.
As I watched mother leaving me,
"That Look" within her eyes!
