One last time

Finally,
I had to make that trip
that I had dreaded all along
to my beloved ancestral home
One last time.

To see you
Sans smile, Sans warmth
Sans movement,
Sans that rare flash of memory
A lifeless body.

Rest in Peace, Ammama
In your new abode.

    1. There is this gnawing pain that she is no more and no one can fill her place Gils.

      In hindsight, I think patti's are angels God sends us, the grandchildren, to enjoy this journey called life.

      We are blessed to have them in our lives.
