no measures taken
it's as she wished it to be
angels now hold her


I will miss her so
but I will remember this
my mom was God's gift


when all lights are low
and weary, we close the day
-my mother lives there


I will continue
one foot in front of the other
just as she taught me


She's dead you know, dead-
But no, I don't believe it
Her spirit lives on


Ahh, my mother died.
she was so very special
God now holds her hand

Do not weep for me.
Lovely, Elizabeth.

Do not weep for me
I will not be far away
Looking down on you

And she WILL be...always.

Bea, Wanda, AMG, Lucie-
Thank you all for reading and feeling this- these-
Lucie, I love your term "heartspace". That is truly "it". Sadly, I no longer have anyone to translate Polish for me. I will have to remember those bits and pieces I know...
thanks again to you all for sharing my sorrow-
