Morning Coffee with Her Mom

Morning coffee with her mom

it’s like Christmas once a year

a daughter and mother time of peace

you will never see a cafetera* at home

just that one time she’s here

every morning and every night

she makes coffee for her mom

but when it’s time for her to go

we don’t only say bye to her

but to the cafetera, till next year.
