I have this vision,
Growing livelier with my every heartbeat,
Of this unicorn whose hooves beat
Ever swifter, a steed upon a mission!
The one-horned horse, all purple quite,
Onward bears an armored knight.
The knight now that helmet removes
And, could it be I'm seeing right?
He turns his head and smiles at me
And - he looks quite as did she!
Why, he bears the spitting image of
My mother! She died over a score
Ago, yet could it be the power of love
By absence so grown fonder,
Now brings back what once was yonder
Here, all alive and all restored?
What power has Love to bring reality
Out of a loving daydream,
And a unicorn out of fantasy!
Author's Notes: Today is the twenty-fourth anniversary of my mother choosing not to be that morning, 22 days shy of her 68th birthday. She had very long-term mental illness and decided not to face another day. I respect her choice. Here's a poem in tribute and memory.
