Mother Dear

Mother Dear

A Poem by Fran Marie

feathers and butterflies
an angel visited today
it's the essence of a love one
whom so long ago went
home to stay

and cardinal birds
have graced tree limb's shade 
with such delight
as sunday's sunlight fade
softly to the hush of night
 
it's when you feel
their presence
of our dear ones
those souls who have
passed on and taken flight..
their spirits in silence
seem to whisper
never fear my dear
I am here..all is well
and I'm alright

I am so fortunate that I still have my mother; and though there are occasional times in reflection, when I accept that one day this will not be so, there is a comfort in the knowing that memories, like love, are forever.

Those last two lines in particular, touched me deeply.

Beccy.

Our mothers are always with us somehow.. and it can be in the look and sound of a bird, in a flower, a piece of music.. anything, everything. However, thing is between child and parent, love doesn't need a reminder.. just a gentle nudge. Wonderful words, loving and genuine, beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing.

my mom passed in 2014, and since no Mothers Day has been easy....this is so serene...
I feel her presence often, especially watching the birds....she was such a bird lover...she and my dad had several feeders for different kinds.

This was beautiful, both the words and the sentiment they expressed. I lost my mom in 2011 so I can relate to this on a very personal level. My mom loved her birds and flowers too. Very much enjoyed your poem, F.

dearest Fran... I believe in the spirit of birds, especially Cardinals... they are more alert and cautious than most birds. I believe that our Spirit lives on, because every new born baby is born with a spirit. Someday we will know the exact details... but not too soon. gently, Pat
