A year ago

My mom passed away a year ago today. Photo #1 on the left is my mom in the brown shirt, her best friend (since high school) Eileen (in the blue shirt) and two other friends from Scribner, Nebraska (my hometown). Photo #2 is the street where my mom lived. Photo #3 is a sunset over a nearby soybean field. Photo #4 is a rose from one of the dozens of funeral flower arrangements.

When the Heavens Light Up
by Patty Larkin

Look at your hand there in the wind
Familiar as your name
You’re gonna spread your fingers like a wing
That will lift you up when you wave

You’re gonna wave good-bye
And the world will sigh
When The Heavens Light Up

You’re gonna hear a string of violin
Whisper soft and low
It’s gonna take you where the ocean ends
To the river red and gold

You’re gonna wave good-bye
And the world will sigh
When The Heavens Light Up

Look at your hand there in the wind
So far away, so near
You’re gonna leave a pillow when this ends
With a feather and a tear

You’re gonna wave good-bye
And the world will sigh
When The Heavens Light Up
