Tarheels

grief is unexpected
coming when my guard is down
 my thoughts are elsewhere
yet there it is
a tear flowing down
a catch in my throat
my mom loved UNC Tarheels basketball
with a passion
even obsessively
 in the nursing home
we would watch the games
and she would fuss at her team
some of my greatest childhood memories
come from watching the black and white tv
and hollering for those ‘heels’
it’s what we did
it’s who we were
it was family
every game I watch
every time I holler
she is with  me
cheering on those ‘heels’
I miss you, Mom.

  1. Those are the times you blow kisses to heaven and you’ll feel her smiling back at you.

    So don’t love it when grief hits unexpectedly, though. It leaves me rattled for a couple of days.

  2. (((((((Marty))))))))

    Love you.
