Mum's Birthday – 11/7/12

 

rain- leaves clothed

with gentle shining

we are close today...

time of your birthday...

near now...softly

tugging on the cord

linking us...you are

here today...rain falling

yet with tears there

are drops of light...

precious islands of memory

where...joyful together

we live the new life...

dad too...my best mate

close by your side

in higher life where

existence known no

boundaries...all is

life ascending to

higher and deeper life...

my brother richard

other loved one's here

as our different realms

of spirit celebrate you...

this day dear mum...
