On the Day Mama Passed

for Sharry (so sorry dear, but I found this record of your sweet memory and a poem called to me – I know it is close to the anniversary and yet you haven’t really had time to grieve)

On the Day Mama Passed

On the day mama passed……

On the day mama passed
we drove into the valley.

On the day mama passed we drove into the valley, and parked on the side of the road.

On the day mama passed,
we drove into the valley,
parked on the side of the road
and watched the swans.

On the day mama passed, we drove into the valley, parked on the side of the road, and watched the swans rise and take to the sky.

On the day mama passed,
we drove into the valley,
parked on the side of the road,
and watched the swans rise and take to the sky.
My heart kept time with their wings, pulsing as one towards the horizon.

On the day mama passed,
we drove into the valley.
