Children and parents
all caught in sorrow
Angery siblings
forgetting tomorrow
But thru mom's faith
and loving design
All together
as we now find
The true colors of fate
darkening this day
And the lack of love
fake as we pray
But love won out
as we cried in hand
My father and i
together we stand
A sister and me
a warm, kind touch
she shared it with me
changing so much
dropping a wall
remembering our mom
crying all day
and reading from psalm
so it could be right
that mom is now
giving us a chance
to heal somehow
The powers that be
maybe foriegn to me
maybe mom had it rite
with this honesty
thank you mom
for lighting my way
and bringing me here
on your final day
i love you always
inspite of the pain
the hurt we had
was all in vien
What you were
a kind loving wife
A mother to give
for the rest of your life
For these two
the rewards were great
A beautiful life
gifting me this trait
My mother and father
reaching lifes end
entering heaven
to do it all again
I wrote this after attending my mothers funeral on Jan 6, 2017
