A Year to Date

Today does mark a year to date, of loss, of love, of your ill fate
A state of mind where hold we do Six parts on Earth each one of you
Though hunger tears at lonely hearts it's here, right there where you impart
A sense of calm to know, be still, that you are well and life's fulfilled
Filled of smiles from brokenness Joined in hand with Holiness
No better place or state of mind one could wish for, for all of time
We stand before your place of rest though wish we do for more not less
We've come to understand just how we need to see our way somehow
Each one of us will fall to thoughts of memories and lessons taught
Of love no one but mother's can to see us through to understand
And though these words may fall just short we still hold to what you too sought
In absence yours for one another, love no less as you showed mother
A year without has brought some trials, of sighs and cries of missed your smile
But in our hearts where scars now heal, a better day today appeals
We Keep in touch and know that you have come to rest and watch us too
From where Angels tend to needs, where better days are lived indeed
Though we can't be with you for now we hold to truth and you somehow
Through what you left that beats so true
Our strongest link still made of you

In Memory of our mother
Elvira Flores
