Missing Matriarchs

It is a silent rule

regardless of family structure

when crisis strikes

the ear of the Mum, Nan

is always open and available.

Then you grow

some call you adult

the matriarchs do not remain

young eternally…

but still only a phone call away- –

Then there comes a time

when transitioning happens

and you stand witness

of empty chairs

once filled with love

now simply empty spaces

at the family circle,

an open heart sought

to share pain

gain insight

hear wisdom

feel love

all that is there

is the shadow

of emptiness.
