That Long Moment Between ....

We close our tributes to our moms with a second poem by Katherine Walker. Its simplicity is elegant. Its truth, powerful. Accompanying it is the beautiful photo of Jo Nelson, mother of my friend and colleague Ann Jones. Mother's Day 2011 was Ann's first without her mom being physically present.

My thanks to all the writers who contributed to this blog this past month. Your work has touched and helped others who have known this same loss.


She’s gone now
I can’t call her anymore
I can’t hear her voice
See her face
Touch her hand

Say hello
Say goodbye

God I’ll miss her

’til then


by Katherine Walker
