Love and Poetry

Mother dear, you were a piece of work.
Smart, fun, creative and kind.


 ONLY A DREAM  (for my  children)

I want to sleep in the arms of the crescent moon

Counting the stars in the sky

Watching the ocean's reflecting light

From ships that are passing by


I want to be like a bird so free

Any bird will do

To choose my destination

Yet never leaving  you


Wherever the spirit takes me

There I long to go

Released from this cage, my body,

To the freedom I yearn to know


Now raise your smiling face

And carry through

Rejoice with me, your mother,

Forever loving you.

           from the book, Daydreams  Alice Franzen Clemons Burt

Today, May 9th, 7 years ago, we held hands and you died.
Your cat Sunny was with you too.
On, today, Mother's Day, I remember you with great admiration and love xoxo
Parkinsons never knew what hit it, when it hit you!!!
