Remembering on Mother's day; lament not for a life past


Sing to me of my youth:

when I was able to frolic through the day,

when all was an adventure

waiting to be revealed


Whisper to me of the joys of life:

when the land and nature was pure,

when I could blossom with dawn’s breaking,

waiting for the new, joyful moment


Lull me with your soulful eyes:

a kindness that prevails,

a memory not forgotten.

Then I will greet that which will come.


Above all, remember me as I was:

living my life with enjoyment

wasting not a moment given me

Your memories will keep me alive.



I saw these visions in the eyes of my mother’s photo.

Jackie what a grand poem! Truly one of your best, I love it!
You made my heart sing;-)Thanks!

Reviewed by Jill Eisnaugle 5/6/2005
This is beautiful, Jackie. What a unique way of viewing life. The last stanza summarizes how I think we'd all like to be remembered -- as those who gave their all to the best of their abilities and nothing more than that.
Great job!
