Hand-In-Hand

Hand-In-Hand

A Poem by Lisasview
"

My very first Sonnet ever. This Sonnet is about the forever remembered love for a mother or grandmother. remembered.

"


Hand-In-Hand....

Her tired eyes saw more than I'll ever know;
long silv'ry hair piled high upon her head,
the clean fresh scent of times so long ago ...
warm stinging tears are those I often shed.

Remembering her laughter through our years,
when we walked hand in hand along the shore.
As lovely sounds of church bells filled my ears,
my love still held by ocean's distant roar.

Now, fresh white, fragrant lilies near her lie,
a few soft petals fallen from the rain ...
their faces wet, turned up toward the sky;
along with them she takes rest from her pain. 

Sweet memories we shared now mean so much,
each day, I long for her caressing touch.

A very special thank you to Richard!! Who saw this as a Sonnet (I had no idea what a Sonnet even was!!) and, helped me complete it. He opened up a whole new world to me.
Thank you,

This was particularly touching to me. I was the primary caregiver for my mother the last five years of her life. It was the hardest and most challenging task I have ever undertaken. Given the chance, I'd gladly do it all again. By her grave, I was almost too exhausted to cry. But I found great comfort in knowing her worldly suffering had come an end even though I know I will miss her until we meet again. Thank you for this, I enjoyed. F.

This is such a warm and endearing sonnet. It pushes all the right buttons to relate to the many, and more importantly, to you.

Mothers and grandmothers are so precious. Losing them means losing our greatest treasure.
A sonnet so beautiful to read and to feel. Lovely imagery and such fluid verses, a reader's delight!

What a beautiful tribute! I thought of my own grandmother, who kept her hair piled high on her head and filled my life with laughter. Her first name was Lillie, so the images of lilies brought her readily to mind. I sense the sadness of your loss and the love that still ties you together. Well done!

This is a very poignant offering of love and loss. The speaker is recalling memories of one held dear, probably a relative. The imagery is very moving, making long ago scenes come alive. The cause of the decedent's passing is not specified, only that she was in pain. The accompanying illustration shows us some of the speaker's memories. Nicely done.

This brought back memories
Dementia ruled my Mother's final days
I have her picture on a dresser and I remember how much I loved her and what a poor system this life death thing is
Beautiful image selection, wish I had painted it.
