Mother's Path

by Jacquelyn Horne  
4/02/2007 / Poetry

When silently she closed her eyes,
I really couldn't tell
Which way she went
As, secretly she slipped beyond life's veil.
I loved her with a love so strong,
I know she loved me more,
But love is not a key
To see what lies beyond the door.
I watched her house serenely there
Upon the lowly bed
And knew the hurt
Of gentle words that never could be said.
And though I search this whole world o'er,
I'll never find, I know,
The secret path she traveled in
When it was time to go.
But in the treasures left behind,
On a map with her tears stained,
She marked the way that she would go,
While here she yet remained.
And if I follow closely here
Her marks within God's book,
I know that when I reach that veil,
I'll go the way she took.
