Mama

Dedicated to my dear Mother, Barbara Shaw,

who died just a few months ago

after many years of poor health and dementia.

Dedicated, as well, to caregivers everywhere.

ma grad

They say the eyes are

Mirrors of the soul,

And I really do believe

That this is true.

.

For, when I look into yours,

Though sometimes conflict

And pain look back,

Jesus looks back at me as well.

.

I see Him holding you so close,

Loving you so much,

And I hope that my eyes

Reflect Him back to you.

    After my mother died, her pastor said, “She’s in God’s care now.”
