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...
:))

Ohhh my dear friend. This is a masterpiece of a tribute to that one person in our life that means more than anything else. The immaculate transition from weeping to singing is done very artfully. Wow!! I am utterly impressed! I love that last stanza. Such bright imagery, and verses that really talk directly to the heart. All verbs and what-not are perfectly stitched together.

P.S. Sorry Gee for taking this long to review this .. but here I am :)

Twitter!!!!sorry my little Scottish Golden Eagle,I meant titter!!!
great poem, i specially like the elements you've rounded up: the sun, the birds, choirs, and cherubs. It's sad, yet beautiful. i think the length is appropriate too; no chance for the reader to wander away!

I'm not being funny but I can see this being a perfect eulogy read out at the funerals of Mother's everywhere, I think it is such a beautiful write that it should be used as such, the rhyme and flow of it are a delight and its great that you have shared it here, thank you :)

Blimey,that is high praise indeed.You're very kind Richard.Thank you
Reminds me of Ecclesiastes - to everything a season. You have captured grieving the loss of a mother so well as we must take time to mourn that loss but also time to rejoice in a life lived. My mother passed at a young age years ago and this piece has caused me to reflect on that this morning in a good way. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks very much,I'm happy this has revived happy times.Take care,thanks for reading.
A going-through of mourning phases--typical and necessary.
The difference, here, being that these stages are poetically--indeed, exquisitely--portrayed.
Truly impressive work, Gee; gratifying to read.
