Talking To The Dead

"I talked to her

and she kissed me too."

"Are you insane?

It can't be true.

You are a simple soul

undone by grief.

Or was it a dream?"

"Nay, Nay, she came.

She looked at me and smiled.

Her contenance was light

and I stood bewildered

until she called my name.

I wept and shrieked,

'After all these days

You finally speak!

Tell me the reason

why you left me alone?'

She whispered a prayer

and with a kiss she left me again."

Tommy, you are very right. It's my mother.

Binte this verse strikes me as a recollection maybe a visitation of a loved one (your mother?) who has passed away.
Left and lost.
