Sun Shower Tears

Reservoir of memories
A blessing of above
Your lifetime of outpouring
Unselfish gifts of love

Stored within the soul
Treasure of the deep
Of our foundation strong
Your legacy to keep

Intimate of knowing
Your blood flows in our veins
Reflection of your calling
Still here you remain

Sometimes in the light
A blessed thought is shared
That stir emotions deep
One of sun shower tears

A gift in which to dwell
Of joy and sorrow too
The smile of your love
In presence here of you

I Can Lend an Ear

Words of my Mother
Of ones I hold dear
“Please remember to call
If I can lend an ear”

When off to college
Arising my fears
You encouraged my heart
With words that you shared

Or raising the children
I was always aware
I could turn your wisdom
You were always there

Throughout my life
A note would appear
On rainy days
Your love I would hear

Though you’ve passed on
I hear your voice clear
“Please remember to call
If I can lend an ear”
