HAPPY FAMILY DAY, LINDA MARIE, EASTER WALK, 7th REPOST


Morning wakes my daughter like a brass band,
Sweet eyes focus, how they struggle to see,
Yet her face lights up as I wave my hand,
Her own lifts from the sheet, reaches for me.

She is gently lifted, placed in her chair,
Contented to watch a bird on the sill,
Giggles escape as I ruffle her hair,
Fingers miss a ribbon then clasp a frill.

No mother could be more happy or proud,
My angel is trusting, joyful and smart,
I stick out my tongue, and she laughs out loud,
There is my everything, there beats my heart. 

Dressed and readied for a walk in the park,
She refused to eat so much as one bite,
Kittens play and a squirrel starts to bark,
She takes in the warm day, sighs at sunlight.

Tenderly, I tell a story of love,
And then softly sing her favourite song,
Wheels splash through a puddle, clouds drift above,
I see from her smile here’s where I belong.

Easter’s breezy stroll has put her to sleep,
I sit on a bench, whisper a prayer,
Please, just for one hour… let death keep…
My great grandson sits, too, oh, how he cares.

See, I’ve been dead now for over seventy years,
My child just turned one hundred and seven,
God graced her life with more laughter than tears,
Me? I’m blessed to escort her to Heaven. 


LINDA, YOU FREELY SHARED 
YOUR LOVE
YOUR TALENT
YOUR FAITH
YOUR FRIENDSHIP
YOUR ADVICE
YOUR FIRE


WE MISS YOU xoxox
BUT YOU WILL FOREVER SHINE!!!!

    Dear Cyndi - I have read so many dedications to Linda Marie, this one among the most touching. I don't think I've ever read her poetry. What is her last name so I can find her here? lvoe, Kathy
