A Mother's Call

images of your children
forever on your screen
separation, anxiety and love
the blessed trinity
the need to comfort
to iron out the wrinkles
to diminish their pain
to ingest some wisdom
to eradicate the mystery
to hold their hand
while climbing the mountain
or walking heavily in the rain
to gently touch
to freely let go
to be right there
and then disappear
to give life
to let it fly
waiting patiently
as they wave goodbye
