I hear my mom waking me up
Pork shoulder sizzling
Smelling the cookies,
three leche cake
Tasting the sweet sweet
pots and pans
in the kitchen
the glittery red bows
The cozy warm
Me seeing my presents
when you were called
I knew you wouldn't come back
I wait for you
weave as I wait
will you ever come back
I miss you
crying and crying
I can't wait any longer
where are you
