(Dedicated to my mom, Maura this Mother’s Day)


For years, I could hardly say that she is gone.

All I was thinking that she only wandered far and left me fair dreaming;

But her motherly love and warm embrace I yearn for years and counting;

Know not how soon her faring end and gladly return;

Maybe she is not just away.

Only her glorious memories still lingers fresh…

For the love of thee and love of there as dear;

I humbly accept and yield to the Holy Father where she might be;

I waved my hand with cheerful smile;

For I am too sure, oh dear, she is already resting with peace at the garden of Great Beyond.
