In Memory of our Mother and Grandmother ~ Lou Anne Johnson
In Memory of My Mother
The Lovely Lou Anne
By Cathy Collar
You reveled in the
beauty of the world around,
The sweet fragrance
of hyacinths, as they pierce the ground.
The brightly colored
daffodils, bobbing toward the sun.
The robin and the
meadow lark, when their song is sung.
Turkey, quail, and
raccoon, fed in your backyard.
On the creek the
beavers worked so diligent and hard.
At the dawn, or at
the dusk, a deer might shyly tread
To graze among the
blossom growing in the flower bed.
Horses prancing, pawing, neighing, running just for fun,
The wonder of the
sunset, when the day is done.
As ashes drift with
the breeze and settle to the ground,
The beauty of your
soul enhances everything around.
We’ll hear your
laughter in the song, the birds sing everyday.
We’ll see your grace
and beauty through the creatures as they play.
And in the haven by
the creek, which you have chosen well,
Eternally your soul
will keep and your memory will dwell. CLC
