Notes

They say “Mom I love you”

and “you’re the best”

the notes that you wrote me

when you were five or six

they continued all the way

as you grew older

the notes changed along with you

but the message was the same

and I wrote back to you

in school journals, birthday cards

notes we exchanged

until that one day

there was the final note

when you decided

to go away
