For One Who Mourns

Lil' firecracker, July child-to-be
Another sunny redhead, she hoped in vain
No, for you there were other dreams

'Too good for this world' was said of you
And it is true: those who find not the way to
earthly night or day are destined for the Light

(And she mourns:
'I believed in you...
I believe in you still...
Do you believe in me?
One day, my own, you will...')

Mourning is colorless; loss transcends
the blackest void. Born to this world or no, life
within changes Woman... forgetting is impossible

There's a broken heart of faith longing for the day
when at last she'll see your face: finally, you will taste
of Mother love and she, the sweetness of your soul!

('I believed in you...
I believe in you still...
Do you believe in me?
One day, my own, you will...')

Born into this world; but, death is part of us. Nice work.
Esther...I still light a candle at Christmas...the dawn of the Millenium for me, was wracked with grief. Thank you for this lovely poem. Hugs, Dee
Esther, I tried to pass on this, several times! My tears just wouldn't let me do that! I just had to say that! No more need be said!
Hopefully, those who mourn will be comforted when they read this touching poem. Exceptional work, Esther. Warmest regards, Sandra
A little bit of hope, this brings, through tear-filled eyes, E. It is beautiful. t x
