Artist's Description

© C J Lewis. Oils on stretched canvas 20”x 30”.


This painting depicts the love of a mother reaching out from across the Great Divide – the other side of life – as denoted by the cross running down the centre of the painting and the ethereal quality of the mother. The girl has her eyes open due to her awareness of ‘being’ whereas the boy still is to awake, depicted by closed eyes, to life’s energy functions. The poem below was written in honour of my mother on her passing. I was sitting at my computer working when at 10pm on the Wednesday before her death she went into a coma in Gosford Hospital – she called my name and I knew then she was leaving this dimension soon. I immediately got up and said out loud: ‘It’s ok mum … dad will open the door for you’. I then sat down and composed this poem. Our mother died at 5pm the following Friday.

JULY 2009 FEATURED IN Peace Love & Tranquility group


Our mother was naturally beautiful
A woman in every way
Our mother was loving
And so caring
And always had her say
Every brand new day
As a child
I saw her gently tending her roses
With emotion so very deep
For the beauty that she saw in the flowers
Was from her heart
And her beauty made me weep
And the light of love surrounding her
Translucent skin with no flaw, I saw
Maybe, to others, as mother and daughter
We were constantly at war
Like two fires brought together
The flames of love did roar
‘Tis a love that will be in our hearts for evermore
And Mother, I heard you call to me
In spirit last night
Mother you need not be in fright
For God, our Father will take you through the door
Back to his heavenly home once more
Where relatives and friends are waiting
And you will be the belle of the ball
Though your body may seem missing
You’ll see it as before you took your flight
In Holy Spirit to soar
As you pass through
Deaths door
And we will always be together
As we have before.
