Tribute to my Mother

The twinkle in her eye expressed the spirit in her soul
Her soft-spoken voice with whispers untold
Her gentle wings embracing us all
The grace that unfolded with radiance afar
An angel who sprinkled gold dust on our hearts
Making them glitter and shine with goodness within
Peace we felt, worthy and strong, no faults, no judgments,
no one was wrong.
Sisters and brothers by side we stood
Rekindled in are spirits we are but one
Reunited in friendship, enarmored with God.
Compassionate and kindness our cups overflowed with 
the blessings on which he bestowed.
She quietly nestled back to silent repose
Leaving us with her gentle soul and miracles abound all around
Inspiring us to love, we will prevail
We transcended together in deep solemn sleep
Fields of flowers waved in the wind as I let her go
The raindrops fell as she bid farewell
The sun awoke as the horizon unveiled
A bright beautiful rainbow appeared in the sky, as golden
rays trimmed the clouds from behind
That day memories and prayers were fulfilled.
She flew with wings to a better place where tears are
subdued permitting only laughter and rejoice
Adorned with GodŐs glorious crown
Victory at last, we triumphed indeed
WeŐll be together soon, donŐt worry Dear.
God has plans for us all in his Holy and Promised Land
It is not death we die but we are reborn again to an eternal
and everlasting joy.  
May these words of wisdom be with you all until we meet
Again in the enchanted gardens of heaven above
