For Mom
Author: Catyrose


Cornflower blue eyes appear upon the canvas
Cobalt hair cascades in waves across slender shoulders
A generous smile adorns her lovely face

A willowy form stands straight and tall
Poised amongst the clouds
In a sapphire tinted sky
Silhouetted in vivid golden hues

Slender fingers reach out from the mist
Extending open hands
And outstretched arms
To those she once held dear

Brush in hand
A picture I shall paint
Of one I lost so long ago

As time goes by
Her image will remain
She is etched upon my heart

------- Author's Notes -------

Written in response to a conversation with my sister regarding our mother, who passed away when we were very young.

I'm sure your mum watches over you with pride.
Memories are a valued gift we as humans carry,
and I shed tears over these words
thank you for sharing
