I kick the leaves along the lane
And see again that Autumn dawn
Where nothing good was ever born,
While he who is not friend or foe
Marches on.

And now within the red and gold
A quiet room; eyes that smile;
Familiar hands inviting mine,
While love that could not be contained
Slips silently away.

I taste the salt, touch the scar,
And watch the leaf fall from the tree,
Wanting what can never be.

It's that time again Mom. Cath and Gra's wedding anniversary and the night I lost you forever. Wish you were here. I ran into Val not so long ago. I hadn't seen her for so many years but had been thinking about her. I wanted to ring you when I got home and tell you that I had seen her. I am spending some time with Cath tomorrow and I'm sure we shall been sharing a few memories. I love you Mom.

Mom
Just found out that I'm going to have a grandchild. Adam and Kirstie are having a baby. I wish you and Dad had been here to tell my good news to. I know you would have both been happy.
Lots of love

Hello again Mom,
Another year has passed and yesterday I went to Cath's with Janice and Matt. Lily was there and Leanne came later. We burned a candle and remembered happy times. We talked about Blackpool and laughed about that year that we dressed you up a Guy Fawkes to scare Dad when he came home from the pub. Thanks for all the good memories Mom. We will always love you.

Hello Mom,

We have all spoken to each other and can't believe another year has passed. You are still loved and missed more than you would ever have imagined. Wish I could pick up the phone and speak to you. Lots of love forever. x

Heaven Can Wait

There she goes
Carried along on the wing of a prayer
A halo of poppies adorning her hair
Such a pitiful sight
In her collar of white
There she goes
From the nest of the nightingale see her arise
As the birth of the day marks the end of her life
See the peace spreading through
Her forget-me-not blue
There she goes
Leaving the pain of her life far behind
As the paths of Eternity gently unwind
Just look at her fly
She bedazzles the sky
There she goes
In the arms of the angels, the portals of pearl
Beckon her on to a parallel world
But she stops at the gate
Heaven can wait
There she goes
Turning her head for one lingering glance
At the ring-around-roses of grief's timeless dance
Then her smiles fill the sky
As she whispers goodbye
With one last gentle sigh
There she goes

By Chris on 31st May 2002
Thinking of you today Mom. It would have been your birthday tomorrow and we would probably have all been together at your house. I will have to be content to say thanks for all the hapy times that we did have together. We had some fun didn't we? You and Dad gave us a very happy life and I hope that I have learned some lessons from you about what is important in life. Bless you for just being you. Lots of love.

Mother's Love

Of all the wonders in the world
Or in the Heavens above
The greatest wonder of them all
Must be a Mother's love

A love as strong as granite
Yet as gentle as a feather
With tender bonds of care
That bind a family together

But beauty must live out its day
And bonds of love must part
Leaving just a memory
To warm an empty heart

Her voice I'll never hear again
Her face I'll never see
Living on inside my mind
For all eternity

The greatest wonders man can build
Will all in time decay
But the wonder of a Mother's love
Can never fade away
