Remembering today.......



Our Ma who went to her reward on this day. 2nd July 1979 Aged 52 years..


On the wings of a memory we see a vision of you there,with a smile in your eyes, heaven's light in your hair.

We feel your presence on the wind we smell you on the rain,

And the memory of your laughter eases all pain.

To see that wonderful little grin on your face,

To have your smile light up even the darkest place.

If it were possible, we'd pray you back home with the dawn,

But Ma, on the wings of our memories you're not really gone.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ma. You fought the brave fight and were valiant.


Thank you for your love. Thank you for being our Ma.


Remembering you today, Ma... and for always.

Hi, Jim. Sons and daughters are usually the reflect of what they saw and lived at home, so your mother (and father) must have been a wonderful person. Congratulations and see you soon

Hi!

That is a most beautiful poem to honour your ma with. She can be proud of her son!

I like your writings, and I will surely be back.

Lived in Ireland for two years, in Celbridge. Spent an awful amount of hours in fantastic Dublin as well. My favourite city of all.
I really miss it I do!! The atmosphere and its people, make it a special place to be.

Hugs and greetings from Norway

Monsoon :-)
