A mothers passing

A mothers passing

A Poem by Gee
"

For all those that have lost their mother

"
Wash every face with mournful tears
let solemn silence fill all ears,
have time stand still to mark the day
a mother died, passed away.

Draw a veil across the sun
inform the birds no song be sung,
bow down all heads in silent prayer
for she is gone, no longer there.

Let choirs of angels sing their love
and carry high her soul above,
then cherubs tend and for her care
until the time to join her there.

Dry every face of mournful tears
may celebration fill all ears,
remove the world from mute and pause
each broken heart beat out applause.

Unveil the sun tell all birds sing
rejoice in what all mothers bring,
a love unbounded true and deep
eternally in each heart to keep.

"let solemn silence fill all ears, .." - class image here - absolute nothingness filling the voids - very apt for this write.

i like the way the whole write swings around this fulcrum
"Let choirs of angels sing their love,
and carry high her soul above,
then cherubs tend and for her care,
until the time to join her there. " - as a fulcrum its quite stunning and clever word arranging too.

The fourth stanza reminded me of the New Orleans style funerals with the jazz bands accompanying - a fine celebratory verse - of a life well lived.
The end stanza brings us back to serene poignancy and allows the reader to carry on but with a new memory in our hearts forever.
Its a very well penned memorial Gee. Really... sound as...
:))

Anytime. And thank you. Idk why the pic is sideways, but it works for now.
We sometimes never know what we have lost till it is gone. Tears of sorrow when the time comes to recall those years!

I cant personally relate however I lost my grandma and i remember my mom's reaction how she felt like a orphan and lonely that night. But she knew the love they had was never ending even after death. A great poem with raw emotion.

Thank you, appreciate you both reading and commenting.
dear Gee... when our Mother leaves, we are orphans... with part of her embedded in our true self... entangled in her love forever. A beautiful poem that speaks with a love that lingers in our heart and soul. truly, Pat

Deeply personal yet a love so universal. The grief of losing one's mother is incomparable and truly debilitating. If this has been a personal write for you Gee, this could be cathartic. A brave and a humbling write.

Ah thank God! More power to the both of you.
If ever an occasion elicits inconsolable grief and profound melancholy, a mother's passing is certainly it.
Work that eloquently conveys the immeasurable depth of loss.
Heartbreaking read!
