but as I listened close this time such joy I heard – be sure
she called to me “Come quickly here and see what I can see”
and as I entered our bedroom she waved her arms in glee
she pointed to the ceiling with a smile upon her face
“The Gathering,” she whispered soft “they’ve offered me their Grace.”
Electric shocks ran up my spine as I just stood in awe
as Heaven sang a welcome song her happiness I saw
she passed on two nights later with our kiss said “It’s ok,
I’ll see you in another time, we’ll meet again one day.”
then as I closed her eyes I cried, my heart-felt tears ran free
I thanked her for the love she’d shown and all she’d given me.
Now in our daughter’s eyes, I see her mother’s bounty bright
and we live in her honour, with her humble guiding light.
