My mother's very last words, with a wistful smile, "I am so tired." And with that, she drifted to her final and last sleep. Well deserved is her resting place having raised 5 children. YOUR verses easily flow into the brain and go directly to the heart wherein our memories reside. Your second verse stunned me to my core. My mom adored the coastal waters, having lived on both sides of our country shores as a teenager. The brevity or how you sewed those words together created a multitude of emotions and memories; such clarity! Thank you for remindy me, in memory.

I am so sorry, I lost my dad when I was a little girl, I don't remember him that much at all.
This was a lovely expression of grief. Each of us handles grief in our own way. Personally, I've never had time to grieve the loss of those most dear to me...life beckons and things need taking care of. There's nothing we can do for the dead but say goodbye. The words of Captain Call echo from the movie "Lonesome Dove', "He's right boys, the best thing you can do with death is just ride away from it."

The impression is that the mother is newly deceased. A moving tribute here, filled with evocative imagery. The last verse caps off the poem splendidly.
