"You'll never walk alone"

"You'll never walk alone"

A Poem by Gee
"

Mum 04/12/1936 - 09/04/2019 How she would have loved their victory over Spurs.....

"
The anthem of the Kop, once stirring, uplifting,
now brings sadness, tears
and visions of her small coffin,
atop which white flowers silently proclaim her name.
Amongst these sits a small, brown, teddy bear
that once resided on the pillows of her bed.
Bedecked in the colours of her beloved Liverpool FC,
it looks forlornly out at a myriad of tear stained faces,
as if it too is struggling to come to terms with her passing...

Author's Note

Gee
"You'll never walk alone" was the song to which mum disappeared behind those curtains.
For any of you who have never heard this song sung by Liverpool fans please Google "The Kop Choir LFC."

This offering is the product of a grief yet young. Things related to a person's life become touching reminders of their passing. May the pain of this particular passing soon become revered memories.

Thank you John
Awesomeness Gee! We love our football here and the Steelers here symbolize the last gasp hopes of an industrial city when all of the mills closed here lots of folks were displaced. When they had to leave town they took the Steelers with them, a unifying thread of A larger family connection across the states and beyond:) I buried my stepmother with her Steelers terrible towel and her Wisconsin Badgers pin on her blouse! Great and evocative write Gee

You are ( and will be) reexperiencing those last moments of your mum, Gee. The sense of loss... loss of that precious person grips heart from your poignant poem. You have been on my mind on this Mother's Day morning, wondering how you are coping. Wishing you strength, love and all the best.

I am really sorry Gee to hear of your dear Mum's passing. Condolences to you and yours at this difficult time. Of course the anthem of the Cop is well known in this household with the Liverpool contingent. Didn't they do well in the week? Take care.

Rollercoaster at the moment.
Thank you kindly :))
Ahhhhh.....that mighty and emotional tune!

As i said before Gee, I couldnt have picked a better song myself for such a solemn occasion. I guess it just means that anytime that song is heard from now on, it will take on an extra special meaning for you personally. Given the recent Miracle at Anfield, I am sure your Mum is doing her best to guide the Reds to glory. Let's hope they can do her proud.

Another fine write, my friend. Best wishes to you and yours.

This is such a beautiful expression of how you're feeling. I really envy you the ability to dig down & find those feelings & express them at a time like this. It's very difficult & I admire you for sharing so much personal feeling & understanding with us (((HUGS))) I sang this song as a solo at my eighth-grade graduation, which was only 8 kids or so, graduating from a 4-room schoolhouse & our ceremony was at the old wood-slat grange hall down the road where only about 8 people could fit on the tiny stage. This song brings back a ton of memories for me! Fondly, Margie

You’re most welcome Gee :)
such a loving and wonderful poem for your Mom, Gee... you sent her off righteously, but the loss never truly goes away as things will always remind you of her as she resides in your heart.....

lost both parents within 8 months of each other, mom first and then dad... with mom I learned music and art and theater... with dad it was poetry.... they were together for over 75 years...
