I found my mother
at the doorway
of my bedroom
at noon today

she told me
of a song she learned
at the hospital
that captivated her
and so she chased it
and with the nurses help
was able to catch its name

we listened to that song today
together in my bedroom
at little past noon
and her eyes teared up
at Adele’s mention
of missing her mother

and my eyes glistened
as I thought
of my mother
missing her mother
and the inevitable day
that, I, too
will miss mine
