 In Passing

She came to be the end of my day
Mother in passing in heart you shall stay
Though physically gone in memories I'll hold
Each day that I wake though time breath yours stole

Kneeling by your casket I cried and tears ran
Like child I became more grown up this man
Came to accept as peace became clear
Upon your last breath, breath yours mother dear

Four sisters, one brother expressed sentiment
Cried too loving siblings as mother you slept
Eternally sleeping shortly after one
Goodbye precious mother, your soul GOD has won

Your body would travel to mass near not far
As limousines followed with family in cars
Ave Maria and two other songs
Were sung to bring comfort to all that felt wrong

Peering through tinted windows it all felt surreal
Wishing this was a bad dream unfortunately real
The incense and prayers that soon too would follow
Added to the moment in passing hard to swallow

The hearse now reloaded with casket again
Became the last time three cars round would bend
To where you dear mother once lived your last days
As flowers were placed, two arrangements displayed

The drive to the place where others now sleep
Came into full view with grave six foot deep
The casket now pulled and carried by hand
Became the last act of event so well planned
Leaving but a shell of you we called mother
Dearly departed with flowers about smothered

In passing my eyes would close and deep sighs
Became of this day this our last goodbye
Wishing things to be different for you are now gone
While asleep with hope hearing once more love you mom
