Mom, I Miss Our Calls

Mom
our relationship
could be complicated
at times
but mostly
just love
Over the years
you got better
at saying it
showing me
in a hundred different ways
how much you loved me
Now
you're gone
The thing I miss most
our phone calls
Today I'd call and tell you
"We're done!"
Instead
I think it
and know how excited
you'd be for us
Now
you live on
in all those remembered
spaces
your words
your smile and laughter
you're eternal love
and support
I miss you, Mom!
And yes
we finished the big one
and it looks lovely
