YOU MY MOTHER
Warren 15th January 2014
this day three years ago my mother died in the early hours of
the morning. When I finally slept and I had a dream and on waking
I wrote this letter to my mother which I would like to share with
you on the third anniversary of her death. To you my Mother,
what is it to die than to stand naked in the wind and to melt
into the sun.
what is it to cease breathing than to free your breath from its
restless tides so you may now rise and expand and seek a new future
now the earth has claimed your body, why now my dear Mother you
shall truly dance.
miss you, I love you. I thank you for this the gift of my life
which you bestowed upon me.
now you would not want us to look for you in memory alone where
we will grow old and lonely without you.
you would want us to find you in the present.
When beauty brightens and w hen Kindness and beauty flow.
now to me. For me all the smiles on your face in this the life
we shared together lay like flowers on an altar and that altar
is my heart.
