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
now sleep our pure adored soul
In memory of my greatly missed and much loved mum.
