Mother's Passing

Clouds of peace rose from
the casket on the alter.
We stood as one
Jack and I walked forward
to place the rose petals with love.
A mother, great grandmother
had departed leaving this earth,
to travel to the land without pain.
Took out place of honour
beside the casket on this
her final journey.
Jody helped escort us
to the waiting hearse.
She gladly walked her
her grandmother to the land
of peace and tranquility,
where my mother now stands
beside my father for eternity.
