Mama
« on: May 08, 2015, 12:52 AM »
Mama Sunday

You departed under the silk sheets of night
silently slipping under the rail of darkness,
covers of comfort pulled taunt, neck high.

Excusing yourself from the world early
your last breath echoed through my hand,
your glow faded slowly before me.

But always on this special Sunday
I feel your eternal echo drift into
the day and with this passing
a bell can be heard to ring softly
in remembrance.
Weave
a good poet is like a bride
Something old, something new, something borrowed
but mostly you.

My wife's mother is near death right now. She's 95 and had a good life, then suddenly she had three strokes a few days ago. Just that quick she's in her death bed.

Your write takes on a personal quality Word, because I can feel every word of it.
Stop looking at the light. Instead, look at what is being illuminated by the light.

I know this was posted way back, and I did reply to it, but now in rereading I wish I had expressed more heartfelt sympathy.   Since my mom passed just a short time ago, I feel not only my own loss, but I see the emotions of others more.  I'm sorry Weave, hugssss.

... and Earl, hugs for you, too, so sorry that any of us have to face the harsh realities of life with the ones we love so dearly.
