A Mother’s Day Remembered

HSS  0eaaca7ea0caaf0ae763f2c42b0ad243

The heart remembers
all the moments
of a love so deeply shared;
The mother’s touch
of beauty on your soul.
The lifting up of spirits
that were brought down
for a time ~
she gathered into angel dust
and poofed away.

The flowers of fair beauty
that she tended faithfully
now bloom in sweet remembrance
for the hour;
There is no loss of wonder
for the magic they beheld
within her mystic presence
as she cared for lovely souls.

A heartbeat soon recalls
all the love she had to bear ~
within her gentle offerings of grace;
With Jesus ~ her companion ~
she lived daily in His peace;
and spread His kindly love
with all she’d meet.

Into this moment
she comes gently once again ~
softly speaking words of tender love:
“My child ~ my Beloved
you adored shall always be ~
Love lives on in grateful hearts
~ ~ ~ eternally.”

~ Anna Lin

For many, this Mother’s Day will be tinged with sadness for the loss of
mothers in our lives. This poem was written for my mother-in-law, Ann.
I shall sit with a rose in her honor ~ in remembrance of her love and grace.
