This is Not Goodbye : Just See you Later: #NaPoWriMo Day16

Whew! Day 16 Truly this has been a challenge to write everyday- hats off to all of you that do. As a mother of three kids, and so much going on. This poem took me by surprise.

After the death of my mother- its’ still very early to touch this cord. So to honor Mommy’s two year, passing- the irony of life she left here on Easter, like Jesus, she rose with the choir of angels to meet her. Love you mommy- sing on! ( I know you will)

Today I felt like I wasn’t ready to dance, but I tried it anyway. 

thought I wasn’t ready to pray you into the sunset, but I had no say,

I thought I wasn’t capable of sitting still but the more I practiced

 the more peace and sometimes tears , 

Sometimes laughter came to sit  with me. 

Though this is the anniversary of your passing

and right at the end it seems I kept asking…

Dear God, so many souls are passing 

you know each warm-light by name

born-again, as you shed this mortal-tube

as we all must do.(to be continued)

    Oh my goodness Krissy, we have more in common than I imagined. My mother also passed away on Easter Sunday in 2003. This is a beautiful and emotional poem. Although it’s been 19 Easter’s ago, I still miss my mother as you do. But there is something so profound, and so moving, and so poignant that they departed their life here on earth on the day we commemorate Jesus’ Resurrection. πŸ™πŸΌ

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful message. Happy Easter, Happy Resurrection Day to you my friend! πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ˜ŠπŸ’πŸ˜

        I truly believe we are more alike than we can imagine. I was a little sad at first, but glancing at my mother’s photo on my wall, I realize that I am an extension of her, just as you are of our mother. I appreciate ya, Krissy! Continue to carry on the legacy my friend. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’πŸ¦‹πŸ€—πŸ’‹πŸŒŸπŸ₯°πŸ’–

    Oh, Krissy, I’m so sorry you lost your mom so recently. It must still be very painful for you even though she lives on in your memories and in many other ways. I feel your sense of loss within your beautiful words. I’m sure your mom is looking down from the angels at you with love in her heart. She would be very proud of you for being the compassionate, kind woman and writer that you are. I’ll be thinking of you this evening. Take good care of yourself, my friend, and I’m sending you a warm and comforting hug xx ❀ ❀ ❀
