I Hear You Sing Again

“Chet has something for you at her weblog,” Marita told me.

Chet, Marita and I met at the One-Utama Bloggers Meet in January. Chet’s Chatter is one of those blogs that I visit regularly. As I surfed into her blog I was greeted by the title of her latest entry – “To Peter and his mother.”

After I finished reading and listened to the song she had linked at the end of the entry, tears welled up in my eyes. In all honesty, I would do anything just to hear Mum’s voice again, see her face for one last time, hold her tightly in my arms and tell her things that I have not had the opportunity to tell her.

Chet, thanks for bringing back some of those memories of Mum. Painful that they may be, they are also very cherished. Thank you for having us in your thoughts. If there is anything about this song that has touched me deeply, I am made to realise that Mum is with me and in me forever. I am her progeny and her blood flows in me. And yes, in my heart I hear her voice again.
