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)
