A Child’s Longing

Mother's Day
8’x11″ Mixed Media

 I wish you were here when l was in my lowest and saddest time of my life;
I wish you were here to wrap your arms around me, in my moments insecurity;

I wish you were here when I needed someone to talk to;
I wish you were here when I long for someone to stroll with, at the park or at the beach or in a shopping mall… or simply having a cup of tea;

I wish you were here to share my story with you, and tell you how am I doing in this strange country ;
I wish, and l can only wish you were here in this time of uncertainty when anger, fear and trepidation shrouds me;

“Everything will be okay.” is all l can hear from my friends.
Yet nothing compares the unconditional love you gave to me.

I wish you were here so I could speak to you in person how much this love I longed and kept inside me to utter those words,
“I Love You.”

I wish and I can only wish, to you see you before the gates of the temple opens up to welcome you; before your shadow vanish into the mist; before sunrise turns to dusk.

I wish you were here so we both could celebrate this special day.

Happy Mother’s Day to the most wonderful woman who gave me light into this world… My Mother.
