Waiting by Marc Livanos

Waiting

 

Remember our talks,

mother and son.

 

I’d call, waiting

for your southern twang,

 

You’d pause, listening

to carefree thoughts.

 

The oft forgotten,

happy-go-lucky son.

 

Told to drive at 13,

leave by 18.

 

Sirens blew, when

I joined the military.

 

Still, I heard none

of your anguish.

 

Your sacrifice the greatest,

letting me become a man.

 

Mother above,

I send my love.
