Briefly paused the world that day..

Briefly paused the world that day..

A Poem by Gee
"

A mothers passing.

"
And even though tides still ebb and flow,
nights cede to day and seasons change,
the one true constant wanted, needed,
is now naught but raw, emotional, memories,
that bring tears when least expected.

Thank you Tina
My heart goes out to you--I lost my dad two years ago and it's been really, really hard. I admire your ability to write at all--I had to take a total creative break when I lost him.

I don't know if you intended this, but the way none of your lines rhyme, it feels really despondent. It's heart-breaking, both in the structure and the subject. Again, my heart is with you.

Thanks Tom, appreciate your words.
My oh my, what a gently, loving tribute this is, Gee. Such beautiful words for a beautiful woman. And they make you very much and more, her son. Sad days for you and your family but, wrap around your memories, my friend - they'll hug you slowly better.

A very poignant and touching poem, Gee.

In its brevity it speaks in volumes. You have my sincerest condolences. Just know that wherever she is now, like the true Liverpudlian she is, she'll never walk alone. Here's hoping the Reds can do her a favour.

A fine write.

Hope you are well.
So sorry for your loss Gee. I still smart at my mother's death and that was some time ago. You capture an air of helpless emptiness, loss and grief in this short poignant poem. A lovey tribute.
