Did she see you before she could see us no
more? Did she put marker in book to
prepare, or was she—unaware?
Did she say any sort of farewell, did she
tell you anything for me?
How was it to be the children who were
there, to let your mother grow on up and
go—thus turning all the tables? Tell me
how it was to let her
go. Tell me how to let her go. Tell me.
