In A Church Yard

In A Church Yard

(for Mum 18/5/11)

i come here
to a space
behind the church…
my feet
calm, slow
among the stones
wearing by
the turning
i sit
near your
the breeze greets
me touching
as you once
did with quiet hands
…your presence
is in creation
where i sit
watched by pigeons
as well as occasional gulls
…time set apart…
communion in spirit
mum…close to me
now…always to even
beyond the waiting horizon

    There is comfort found in remembering those who were special to us and finding peace within ourselves will secure their love we felt then in our time we have today. This is written ‘freely’ of your soul George!
