A mothers passing

A mothers passing

A Poem by Gee
"

Mourning and celebrating a mother's life

"
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...
:))

Hopefully, thank you WM
This was a wonderfully moving piece. I could feel the emotion and started to get admittedly a little choked up. I haven't experience loss like this and I am sorry you had to. But you have crafted a touching piece of remembrance. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you Joshua
This actually brought tears to my eyes remembering well the loss of my own dear mum and the emotions you go through. Your words sum up so well the heartbreak, numbness and bleakness you feel, it really does feel like the sun will never shine again. The end of your poem is like time as passed and you are rejoicing in the gift that was your mother and you will always keep her in your heart - well done very emotive KT

A melodic tribute to mothers. We should all be so lucky. Relatable to anyone who has ever lost someone they love.

A fine tribute to mothers. I wrote a poem for my mother a few months before she died.
This poem brought back those memories.
