From Silence to Victory

This woman given long of nothing,but a chance to give of herself, but still they beat and asked for more.As always she accepted with a facethat never broke.In the struggle to find the hidden way to love, herself, she lost! But she found a way through kind and good to give to every other  and only asked to see the start of a smile.And I who blossomed strong and late have worked and spoke and prayed so long to make her proud. Now in the memories of her far but still not absent ways,  I chose to simply ease her thoughts in anytime of anxious painin the moving moments of a gift of rhyme. And I shall offer her my always love, although I know and hate and fear,
that my forever words are not enough.
And with new words I offer love so late
but still so dear.

Mama, you on this day shall always keep,
this giving praising moment of each thought
and gift,
though to all other moments when they forgot
when you were only always there.
On this day although a great tragedy,
you are being bestowed the greatest honor
one can obtain.
that is of love, family and friends.

You fought long and hard all of your adult life,
we understand that this is God's way of making
the rest of your days that of peace, joy and
harmony that you never demanded
but rightfully deserved.

She paid the price of victory with her life.
Maybe it was for all those who remain silent and
suffered unheard.
I pray we will better understand our tragic loss
and forgive those who turned away,
rest assured Mama,
we will continue to fight
and you will not be among
the silent but victorious!

In memory of my mother Roberta Murphy 1942-1989

Perfectly touching... indelibly sad... and so true! She was so proud of you, Susan... and she would continue to be so today if she was on this Earth.

May Peace and Love Surround Your Heart Today!
