In Seven Years

a poem dedicated to my Mom who died on December 12, 2013

In seven years
all cells renew
In seven years
I’ll be made new

My newborn skin
Will not recall
The touch of you
I'll lose it all

But memories
Aren't in a cell
It's with my soul
That I rebel

My heart does mourn
My loss of you
As I become
Bodily new

(I miss you, Mom)
