In Remembrance

The moment arrived abruptly
We gathered…we wept
Arrangements were made
The news spread

Family and friends came
There were tears…there were hugs
Memories were shared
Comfort offered

We all joined together
Sang hymns…lifted up prayers
Loving tributes were spoken
A final good-bye

Now I am alone
Trying to understand
A grieving heart

Time will pass
Love complete
Death conquered by Life

In loving memory of my Dear Mother, 1932-2014

    Your poem hit home, I just loss my father last week. I’ve lived your words, except for being alone. Thankfully I still have my mother, for now. I just could find the words this week.

      Sorry for your loss. Even as adults, the loss of a parent is so keenly felt. Words are hard to find. I could have said feeling alone. I still have my son and daughters, my sisters and brothers, and my church family and friends who are all precious and supportive. But the loss of your mother is such a feeling of loneliness.

  10. Sending a hug and prayers through a difficult transition. I know you will be held by our God of all comfort! Blessings
