When I was away…

Life went on without me.
The house didn’t collapse.
My car collected dust.
The sun rose and set daily.

I missed my Mum.
I worried about her.
She got sick.
I worried more.

When the heart worries,
a holiday can’t be enjoyed.
The mind wanders.
Unease and anxiety cling.

Then she recovered.
This black cloud vanished.
My holiday mood brightened.
The day sunny and happy.
