Bereft beyond belief
I mourn her untimely passing
Stars beguile me with their beauty
My heartfelt loss immense
Grief engulfs me

Made of sand, made of sand
It will soon be the anniversary, she passed away in 2008, suddenly without saying goodbye, she was 64, and I was on the other side of the world and didn’t even get home for the funeral. We all feel it still. She was my mum.
