It’s been a tough week for me in Sicily. My mother in law has passed away after many years of illness.
My Sicilian family is grieving the loss of their matriarch, Nonna, Zia and mother.
Sending prayers to anyone else who has lost a family member at Christmas or Easter time it is tough to grieve when others are celebrating.
Needless to say I’ll be disappearing from social media and blogging for a while out of respect for my family’s loss.
Thank you for understanding.
See you soon
Here is a poem I’d like to share with you.
In loving memory of my dearest mother in law💙
The bride has gone to her groom
after years of suffering and doom
Her last breath left her body tonight
as she struggled through the last moments of life.
May she find peace and light
as the wailing grief of her children
floats upon the veil between us now.
Go sweet lady, mother and child
find those who are waiting for you
beyond this life and the next.
You are gone, but you are here
in our hearts, memories and minds.
Go with peace and light as we
weep, our hearts will be forever
heavier at your loss but it is
something we are destined to bare.
Go to your father and mother, they
have been waiting for so long.
There are so many there waiting for you, more than are here now.
She has gone to the home our restless souls seek, where all destinies end.
