Grandparents Denied Access to their Grandchildren

Another lonely Mother’s Day

Another lonely Mother’s Day

The wind is crowded with

hungry ghosts tonight.

 

Sitting at my kitchen table,

I warm my hands 

on a mug of hot coffee.

 

My eyes cut to the mantle,

to the photo, where 

your laughter was once caught

like a passing train.

 

Tears splash into the coffee,

steaming, teeming

with memories.

 

Where you once were,   

there’s barely a trace.

 

Oh, my son,

how I miss you.
