Memorial Day at The Shrine

I traveled to that private place
a shrine upon a hill
where often I’ve come face to face
with His unbending will,

I brought along my share of ash
to seek out someplace blessed
so she that left us in a flash
could have her rightful rest

among the blooms and butterflies
beside a noble tree
where she would utter wistful sighs
were she alive to see—

a hallowed spot for one
who was so constant with her love
despite a distant son
in search of symbols from above.

What a tender moment. I can't imagine a more beautiful way to spend eternity. I hope you have both found peace at last.

God bless.

Hello Bob,

This one is filled with emotions.
I am really touched. It is not the art of writing, it is just all about emotions and feelings!

Sensitive!
