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...
:))

Thank you Roxanne
God made mothers because he could not personally be every where. A heartfelt tribute to a mother. Indeed, their life is to be celebrated and their memories to be treasured till life ends. Such a great message here. The concluding verse is amazing.

You are so welcome!
Beautiful beyond words Gee. A personal, heart-felt tribute to all mothers filled with deep love and grace. Great form, flow, cadence and rhyme- all perfect. Spans emotions from grief at the loss to rapture at the remembrance of " a love unbounded". Written like a prayer and I will save this to re-read many times. Your own mother must be so proud of you. Kudos!

Oh. Well that's great news. Good writing fools the mind.
This is a wonderful poem celebrating the metaphorical mother, with the mourning of her death, and celebration of her saved soul.. Ah, would it be so for every mother. A lot of mothers die very lonely deaths, and a lot of the younger relatives are just too busy to be bothered! Personally, I am hoping that my death will just be between me and my Beyond.

This is stunning. Going through the emotions of mourning is hard. I like how it begins sorrowful then moves into a celebration of her life.
