It is my mother’s second

dying day.

I awaken, heart heavy,

to the house finch’s

happy song.

An accompanist,

as a spirit dances its


into eternity.

    Your heartfelt poem made my eyes fill with tears… Beautiful imagery ~ may the pain of loss be surpassed by the bliss of eternity!

    So sorry for your heartache Shawn. I was so taken by the dichotomy between your feelings and the finch’s song. The imagery of the last sentence really hit me.

What do you think?
