A Momentary Lapse in Maturity

For Mom

I don’t really want to admit this
But I need you here with me
I know I’m an adult now, but
I’m sick, cold, and need a hug
I just wanna cuddle up with you
Sipping cups of hot chocolate
Watching a funny movie on TV
Chatting about little things in life
I feel like crying, because it’s you
It’s you I want here with me now
