arpie said:OMG - that is AWESOME @StrongCoffee. I hope it makes the short list & that it also takes it out!!
I close myeyes, in my ears your favorite songs soulfully pierce,
Amidst thewords, the melodic and impassable distance, I swear I see you,
Watchfully,my startled gaze entrapped, as you lose yourself in time,
Softlyspoken, selfless pearls of wisdom departing from your lips,
My heart,tangled, distorted and bleeding as you faded,
The shape ofyour face, in the unimagined silence,
Hypnotizedby your earthly, lingering presence,
Pretending mygrappling, unsteady hand doesn’t search for yours,
In thedarkening wakeful sleep, I will remember the endless depths of you,
As I hunger fora craving peace and beckoning acceptance.
I willremember……you my beautiful Mum.
Have a great day! xxx M
