Sweet Soul Surrender

Sweet Soul Surrender She gazed beyond the windowsill where her oblivion stood an idol still Sweet surrender her soul to spill tired trying to escape her innermost ill Breath by breath amidst many a pill a calamitous climb on hindering hill She didn’t move there was no thrill a scowling silence of a chanting chill She never met glamour or fame only famine and fear the war to blame Hardly walked with any shame a mother and grandmother she became An Angelic soul a burning flame such beauty and kindness in her name With gorgeous gardens she did tame a garden queen they did proclaim The skies turned grey within the hour followed by a saddened shower She stood her ground a tiny tower a fragile body like a fragile flower The seeds of hope stained and sour she gave it all within her power In her descent a dormant dour dramatic duplicitous death did devour. Oct.26.2017...^WW^ In Memory of my Mom...An Angelic Soul Born...Camilla Emma Tosca Fortese May.16.1941~~Oct.24.2017 She had Multiple Myeloma...struggled for one year Thank you to all who were concerned
