Ramona’s Bouquet

If emotions were flowers
Sorrow–the deep grief–
Of a loved one passing
Would be a bouquet
Of love and memories

Here are 65 flowers dear mother
A flower for each year we shared
Yellows for the laughter
Purples for the tears
Pinks for new lives we held
Orange for illness and fears
Reds for compassion and care
Greens for day to day tending
Blues for hopes and dreams
White for love never ending…

You may have left
But you are not gone
Death and life everlasting
Have melded into One…

Miss you mama. 1928-2019
