My Mother, Back Then

I wonder what she is thinking at this very moment in time
Have I been born yet, was I on her mind?

Could she have maybe been my best friend
I would have loved to have known my Mother  back then



Was she fun to be with did she laugh out loud?
I wonder was she comfortable in a crowd.

I wonder if we may have had thoughts like spirits of kin
I would have loved to have known my Mother back then.



Or was she shy and kinda stood back and just looked?
Was she a  writer or a reader of books?

Could she feel love for others and broken hearts mend?
I would have loved to have known my Mother back then.



I am so surprised at what I do and say sometime
Was my Mother here was she in my mind?

Did she place the words upon my lips to lend?
I would have loved to have known my Mother back then.
