O The Grieving

~~ My thoughts let go of a thousand memories, Like faces, dates, times and places; Yet, I can easily recall each and every detail, On the day of your funeral. O the grieving . . . In the middle of a snow storm I followed, And the wind blew back my long hair; As we meandered down a winding cold path, The wild storm paused in the trees. O the weeping . . . Snowflakes fell on me from the tangled branches, Falling like crying tears cascading down; I am lost and moaning in this forever, ever memory, And now the snow drifts in the cemetery. O the sadness . . . A headstone is buried deep in the pure white, And but one engraved word is revealed; In this pristine cold, dead winter wonderland, Only one word can be seen, mother. O the lamenting . . . Hidden beneath the snow . . . I will treasure your arms last embrace mother Till this heart stops beating . . . . _________________________________ September 24, 2014 Verse Written by Broken Wings Entered into the contest, A poem not entered in a contest, sponsor, Poet Destroyer Fourth Place

Very beautiful poem. The fact that death can not steal the love we have for our mothers is a great thing.
