I stood before your grave...    saw stone's mosaic glaze, and 'neath the midnight moon,    observed the garden maze of lovely leaves and blooms    around your buried nest; each faithful guardian     for endless, lifeless rest.   My eyes looked up and saw    in clouds, 'neath moonlit sky an angel there above    had signaled not to cry. Your soul glowed in her arms    beneath soft wings of white. My heart was filled with peace; to heaven you took flight. Sandra M.

This poem is so lovely and almost "other worldly" in it's expressions, Sandra. I know you are busy with your husband right now, and I hope he is recovering...I miss reading more of your poetry here. God bless :)
