Allow Me

by Jesus Andrade (author's profile)


Allow Me

As much as I try to reach back
The hands of time won't grasp me
Can't grasp them
To pull myself back
To pull myself closer
To childhood
In my mother's embrace
A fetus in her womb
Umbilically attached
Mother and child

But time
It won't allow it
Won't let me go back
To hug a mother
Who loved me once
Who held me
When times were good
When times were bad
Stop holding me back
Allow me just one chance
To go back
