Ma’s arm

The crink in my neck is terrible, waiting lounges tend to have that effect.

The boys weren’t making things easier either; bouncing off the wall one minute, rolling on the floor the next.

I wouldn’t be making this trip if it wasn’t for ma, I don’t want her to miss out on the boys too.

Our five bedroom house is complete, just as Pa and I always dreamed, sadly we would not share the memory of tiny feet running across the marble tiles together.

Ma says they spent his last days whispering a blessing over us.

  1. They sound like a close family, quite sad that Pa won’t share in those tiny feet. I liked your description of the kids in the waiting room – every time I’m in a waiting room there’s at least one kid acting as you describe!

  2. I have a rule; Never badmouth your own writing. Some of my pieces that I thought were the worst got the highest reviews, while some of my darling favorites turned out to be dogs.

    Personally, I liked the voice in this piece. It seems to have resonated with others as well.
