1 year, 9 months, and 21 days Since your spirit took off it's glove Finally free and released from pain. Today I can say The times I cry for you have become fewer. More are the days I remember you sweetly And love you fondly. Your hugs Your smiles Your voice Your questions Your teasing Your playful humor Intelligence and keen wit. Thank you For the joy that fills my heart. Thank you for the tears Of sweet sorrow that graced my cheeks Thank you for Opening the door of serenity. Allowing and letting go, I find myself full circle Embracing our love with joy. I loved you then I love you now I love you forever. I am grateful That you were in my life. Thank you for being a part of my life. I will always remember you With a joyful & grateful heart. I love you son, Mom
When someone you love dies, it takes time to process the grief. It is possible to move from grief to mourning; from mourning to sweet sorrow; then on to a measure of serenity. Within serenity exists a measure of peace and joy that opens and unfolds the heart.
