Sing To Me
Sing to me
Cradle me Mammy --
in your warm arms I’ll inhale
the fragrance of your skin;
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.

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.
