Mum’s the word

Once upon a time we would say “Mum’s the word”

It was a bond we had that meant we would not betray confidences

Her Mum and my Mum, were like two peas in a pod

Both strong women, both domineering, both very outspoken

That was before the memories faded and dementia set in

Health deteriorated and finally her passing

Now her legacy is one of a little old lady frail and unobtrusive

We no longer have the bond and I am just a down trodden daughter in her eyes

I miss that bond we had but it will never return
