Inside this space, cuddling with you
. My heart swells, maternal love, here beside you
. My Child, you aren’t alone- I will never leave you
. Such lies I told , afterward , I bereaved you.
. Mommy and Susie -so, so true
. You were not my mother, you…
. are… my best forever friend
memories of laughter never end..
. Entwined, entangled as we lay
. Soon stormclouds of dying day,
. Whispers of Roast Beef and Yorkshire pud,
Make as many favorites as I could.
I was your Mommy for years and years
Yet, eyes rained down a daughter’s tears..
Little Pink Teddy squeezed in your hands,
Your sigh moved over shifting sands:
Deserts of grief-so empty of you
Best Mommy, good girl, we aren’t thru.
. Awaken to a face without pain’s lines
. Now endless love and endless time
Beauty is fields of glowing wheat,
Smell the lavender near our feet
Softest blanket where kittens play,
. Gentle sun warms us…As we lay.
