The Summer Sands of Time
Long before I awoke, summer sands of time were spent.
Her hands the dough met firmly, the bread was swiftly sent.
Left outside their door now softly, the moon still shining bright,
She left her gift of love to them and escaped into the night.
June’s sun came quickly rising,
Their hunger forgets the storm;
They never knew my mother was the one that took this form.
