Been Away For A While Now I Am Back

Got an urgent call this year on the 21st of November
My Mom is sick, packed quickly, forgot more that I remember

Flew to New Zealand, the ‘land of the long white cloud’
Just one bag that was all I was allowed

Did not call my neice for her birthday
Hope she had a good one, I am sure she will forgive me anyway

Happy birthday Donna I did think of you
Hope you had a good one, Love to both of you two

I had plenty of sun in Australia as you can see
If you love the water there sure is no better place to be




Well back to Mom we thought her breaths would be few
Suffered much pain but with tons of medication her chances to survive grew

She is now ringing from the hospital “Lesley come get me and bring me home I am not staying here”
Yep she is back to normal, demanding and giving the nurses plenty of grief I fear

Patience I will need although I have been known to lack
But will keep in touch, Been away for a while and now I am back

Poem Friday – Note To Donna

It is just a few days away from the celebration
Its her birthday a special occasion

Who is Donna you might ask and I will tell you straight
Donna is my niece from a marriage of late

I inherited her, which was a great gift
My ex-husbands sisters daughter, still a friend after the rift

Life has not always been easy she has been through many a trial
But she can hold her head up high, be proud, walk with style

I am proud of all that she has achieved
She has struggled, persisted, flourished and believed

For the person she has become, fierce and loyal, quiet not so loud
She sure would have made her Mother so very proud

Her mother left us suddenly a few years back
Just like her Mom, strength of character she does not lack

Well Donna love you and I wish you the best and a wonderful day
When I get back to Australia we will celebrate in our usual drinkin’ and laughin’ way
