I give my mother roses everyday by thanking God for her presence in my life.
I first knew love when she cradled me in her arms and I loved her before I became aware of the existence and love of God.
When I first knew love its’ name was auntie.
She taught me pain, joy, and above all how to live with myself.
Ever wonderful and beautiful woman when I first knew love It was you even before I became aware of the existence and love of God.
Cradled gently in the arms of our creator may God continue to touch you in eternal love and eternal life.
When I first knew love, it was you who taught me pain, joy and above all how to live with myself.
Looking down upon your face I see your glow as you join our ancestors and my soul sings with you as you are welcomed into a higher multi-verse filled with those who left us so long ago and I hear their songs of life as they now reside within me.
When I first knew love it was you who held the orphaned babe six days after your sister left for the other world .
Waving to me she whispered you will be loved.
