 For Who I Am...

 

Cold metal in my hands

Pressing it against my lips

Sealed it with tears in my eyes

With a goodbye kiss.

 

Inside, my life’s reason

For who I am.

My mother and father

My best friends.

 

Cold wintry day

Chilled me to the bone.

Yet, deep in my heart

I knew I’d never be alone.

Cold wintry day

Chilled me to the bone.

Yet, deep in my heart

I knew I’d never be alone.

A graciously worded tribute!
You have a heart filled with much love and compassion.

I salute you Deborah!

Peace, love and blessings,

What a loving, sad and lovely tribute to your parents. I felt your pain as I read your heart cry, crying with you over burying a son years ago. Beautiful, sincere words, Deborah.

Deborah: I buried my father and mother, 3 brothers and 1 sister. It doesn't get easier with each event. It helps to read tributes like yours. Your words bespeak a loving, caring person. You will never be alone as long as there are others like you to lift us up. Thanks for posting your loving remembrance.
