Sing To Me
Author: Capricorn


Sing to me

Cradle me Mammy --
in your warm arms I’ll inhale
the fragrance of your skin;
playing ‘butterflies’,
fluttering eyelashes
against each other’s cheeks.

Sing to me Mammy,
lift me with your spirit
in rousing hymns;
soothe me with lullabies,
swaying ‘til I rest.

I’m growing old Mammy,
yet that little girl lingers --
longing for the solace
of your embrace.
When sleeplessly tired
I ache for the lilting
timbre of your voice,
to wrap me in peace.

nice poem Cap

Props! Yeah, when a loved one passes on, especially the backbone of the family, it's hard to accept it and live another day....but we have to find faith, strength, and courage to make it through...

Good poem Cap.
