SHE WAS OUR MOTHER ~

WE STAND TOGETHER AND WATCH AS HER SOUL AT LAST FLOATS FREE...

FREE FROM SORROW, FREE FROM PAIN ~

FLOATING ON AN ENDLESS MEMORY SEA!

 

 

ONE HOLDS A VISION OF GENTLE, BUSY HANDS;

THE SMELL OF BAKING BREAD REMEMBERS ANOTHER.

AND I ~ MEMORIES OF A VERY BEST FRIEND...

SHE WAS OUR BELOVED MOTHER.

 

 

STILL OTHERS, ON THE DISTANT SHORE AWAIT

WITH SMILES AND OPEN ARMS...

HER JOURNEY, JOYOUS AND FULL OF LIGHT,

FOR SHE IS FINALLY SAFE FROM HARM.

 

 

SHE WAS OUR MOTHER ~

AND AS HER SOUL FLOATS FREE,

HER MEMORY SHALL BECOME OUR STRENGTH

AND GONE FOREVER HER FRAILTY.

 

 

WE FIND COMFORT AND PEACE

IN OUR KNOWLEDGE OF HER PASSING,

FOR SHE WAS LOVED DESPITE HER HUMAN FAILINGS ~

LOVED, FOR SHE BROUGHT US THE BEAUTY OF LIFE EVERLASTING!

 

 

NEVER LOST, ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS

AS HER SOUL MEETS THOSE SHE LONGED TO SEE!

SHE WAS ~ SHE IS ~ OUR BELOVED MOTHER...

JOURNEYING HOME ON THE MEMORY SEA!
