The bus ride takes two hours.
It’s a long time. By car, it would
be a 20-minute commute at most.
But she does it with anticipation
to reach her destiny.
Up and down the beautiful landscape,
snowcaps can be seen high on the hilltops.
Departing the city bus walks up those hills.
Her feet ache, but no matter.
Every minute is worth every ouch
because she knows that when her Mom opens the door
they will smile and share hugs.
And she will be looking into
the most beautiful blue eyes
she has ever seen.
The commute was worth every minute
to share time with her beloved.
For My Mom
