One day I woke as if from sleep,

Absorbed, imbibed your goodness deep.

A sudden Light from deep within,

Evinced a sweetness clearly seen.

Of course your leadership skills I’d known,

Strength and purpose that you’d shown.

Supreme direction always flowed,

With care as on a moonlit road.

I’d seen your diligence, savvy too,

Soulful concern and selfless you.

But now I see a loving flow,

A fragrant inner beauty-glow.

A life of care and graciousness;

Kindness; unobtrusiveness.

A dawn-lit Consciousness rises; starts,

Sweet sacrifice a Mother’s Heart.

So dedication makes you serve,

Graced from above with God’s own Love.

As yon celestial’s minstrels lute,

You’re blessed with gifts of sound and flute.

And so my spirit flowed with glee,

Beholding virtues vast from thee.

Enabling a deeper view,

A precious sacred inner you.

O worthy one with Love’s own ray,

What can I say to you today?

‘cept with a bow, on knees I’ll stay;

Pay homage at thy feet this day.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier.

      Thanks Again, Patricia. I've now visited at least one of your Hubs. My mom was very special, and yes, I'm keenly aware that this is and has been so for so many of us. Yes, this is a very strong and powerful photo. I believed that we used one like this at her funeral. God bless her sweet and selfless life.

      We had a full church and a full cemetery, a real tribute to her loving life. Much gratitude ...much.

      What a lovely tribute to the characteristics of your mother. Including her photo allows us to see her and admire the qualities you proclaimed. It is so nice to dedicate articles and poems to others, and I am sure they appreciate the effort. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, Audrey

      That was so delightful/delightsome to read and thank you for sharing your mum's lovely photo too. You talked about her graciousness and that reflects in your writing on HP. I'm sure one of many beautiful traits you got from her.
