In Memoriam

              I lit a candle today
              In memory of her I struck the flame
              To honor her I touched fire to wick
              From loss I watched the burning
              But it was love that moved my hand
              And it was love that moved my own children
                    and my husband
                    to stand with me
              Remembering her
                    my mother

    • I was feeling so sad on Mother’s Day, missing my mother very much. The support of my children and my husband as I lit a candle for Mom meant a lot to me. It could not lift my sadness, but it did warm my heart.
