Goodbye To Mother - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

As the heart slows,
and breathing
becomes shallow
life hangs by a thread…
with angels hovering
overhead

Sons and daughters
are tethered
to the gentleness
of their mother...
helplessly teetering
on the précipice

To all the days
that have proceeded
a last refrain deafens
A masterful plan
extends its hand
lifting her soul to heaven
