Sunday Muse -- "Mom's"

      "Moms"; a letter 

 AJ, I like your "Mom" poem. Sooo many moms in this world cry a tear for their sons. Right now, this instant they are, oodles of them. 

Forgive me, I think of the time Mom found a cigarette lighter in my pocket while she was hanging up my pants. I know she had a tear, or two for me. Nothing was ever said but she had traded my lighter for a note, left in my pocket. 

Just now I brushed away a 'dry tear' for my mom, twenty-two years since she died.  

I hope some of my kids, and some of the grands, will have a 'dry tear' for me now and then when I'm gone.  That will be soon I suppose.

 - BTW AJ, most in the Muse comments section are wishing they could find the key to your comments, they'd liked to have left one for you.

This is sad and beautiful Jim. I am sure your family will miss you dearly when you are gone.

Jim, I cannot fathom a world without you in it .... I also had a strong reaction to AJ's poem .... I held my Mother in my arms as she passed. A tiny tear trickled from the corner of her eye which I touched and rubbed together with mine.
