Wild Tongue

Mother speaks to me
In her wild tongue
Barely audible
Hardly translatable
But with a love so deep
It hurts
That I can't save her
I can only lay with her
On death's bed
Broken and unable
To leave
The remnants of her life
Lived in perfect circles
Balanced precisely according to time
For my turn
To hear the sound of my voice
Speaking in a wild tongue
Telling my story
With a love so deep
