Thoughts as a Mother is Laid to Rest--By Suzanne Clement--United States

Thoughts as a Mother is Laid to Rest

        April 11th
a cold, raw Monday morning,
        and I gather with
Marianne, Eddie, Sharon,
Jeff, Pastor Michael Bennett

        and Stephen Purdy.
Today, we’re burying Mum
        who died April 5th.
Wake was on April the 9th.
Funeral took place April 10th.

        Mum’s casket and flowers
look beautiful this morning.
        Service is nice, too.
Thank you for everything, Mum.
I love you for eternity.

Suzanne Clement is a writer from Dover, New Hampshire.

  2. This is a lovely tribute to your dear mother. I lost my mother April 1st. on good Friday. I think she wanted to be
    remembered, as if we would ever forget! I am sorry about your loss. Blessings, Connie
