Blankets Of Silk

Blankets Of Silk

A Poem by Diane

She wraps me up in blankets of silk
she lays upon me a grey rose from the field
The sky is clear and the moon is high
She chats a prayer to the angels up high

Not sure what she's saying
But she sounds like a dove
Her voice is calming 
and her words filled with love

My soul is lifting
To where I don't know
Because the power of her prayer
isn't something that's rare

My soul is resting freely
And my mind is at peace

She Kneels down next to my body
and cries for me

A tear has fallen on thee
Making pretty sparks, it crackled and pop
My body is gone 
and when the smoke clears
The only thing left is a woman who grieves.

my pleasure :)
A very nicely done poem. It must be so hard to lose one you love , to me this is a mother burying her child. Lovely details. It brought a tear to my eye too. It can also be read metaphorically. Leaving home, ending a relationship, end of an era.... I hope those that grieve find peace.
