"You Are Always in My Heart"
You must login to vote
My memories are clouded now with pain,
to see her in a box put in the ground.
No more to know the sunshine or the rain,
although my essence knows she's heaven crowned.
The cold and frigid weather seize my soul-
to think of her alone and lying there.
Though she seemed unafraid and knew her goal,
and lived her life in thoughtfulness and prayer.
I never have been one to visit graves
believing they hold bones and flesh, not powers,
and yet, somehow compelled, my spirit craves
that she must be adorned with fresh-cut flowers-
We live within the hearts of one another.
I keep her still, and always will -my mother.
