Sleep

Sleep,

now sleep in a perfect slumber

where fear and pain have no place to be considered

only our last touch of lips on skin to be given some recognition

as its intent cradles around your essence for an entire eternity

feeling the warmth of love touching love without compromise

or the need to wipe away any stray tears of sadness or regret.

This is your unflawed peace

shining brighter than any thought

in the dreams of those who hold you close

lifting their spirit to a knowing, consuming smile

by a tantalizing whisper on a remembering breeze.

This cannot be taken away or even forgotten

for you are cherished and missed in the hearts of so many

so sleep

now sleep our pure adored soul

 

In memory of my greatly missed and much loved mum.

1932-2012
