      MOM

      Sometimes the world seems so cold
      we light candles
      just to run our fingers
      through a little warmth
      but it was never that way with you

      One by one you adopted us
      You wanted everyone
      to call you Mom
      & so we would
      never call you anything else

      The love we feel
      the moment you come to mind
      is prayer itself at work
      & so you live
      uplifting spirit

        Thanks for the reading. Mom was a real person named Fran Simpson who
        had just been placed in a hospice. The doctors were giving her one
        week to a month. Her Son was good enough to take the time to copy
        this poem & read it to her. She died last Saturday. But on two
        other groups, one person's Mom died on the day the poem was posted &
        another a few days before. They both asked me about the timing.
