Holy Woman! - Poem by Romeo Della Valle

Quietly sitting
In my chamber of solitude,
Old memories from my mind retrieving
And coping with a sadness of great magnitude...

O Holy Woman! I am thinking of you!

I think of you and I get the chill,
Trying so hard to put into words
What at this moment I really feel
And expose it to the entire world...

O Holy Woman! thinking of you, I will always!

Emptiness has invaded my heart,
Since I no longer see your face...
Feeling blue now that we are apart,
Knowing no other woman can take your place...

O Holy Woman! thinking of you I will always!

You gave me life and plenty of love,
You taught me to see the difference
Between right and wrong...
You never treated me with indifference,
To you, I dedicate this poem
While I imagine you smiling above...

O Holy Woman! thinking of you, always!

O Holy Woman! a part of me has died,
Since you have been gone,
For you, my eyes many times have cried,
Now, I place a yellow rose on your headstone...

O Holy Woman! without you there is not home!
O Holy Woman! for you I will always pray!
Aware that my time will also come,
Hoping to see you again in that special day! ...

    This is rich and profound in meaning. I believe that mothers are very special and they need our love and tenderness. This poem reminds me of my mom too. She has taken a part of me. She passed away approximately two years ago and I have not found another. Would I ever?
    Keep on writing my friend and be a blessing to others.

    Excellent tribute to Mother …

    ’Holiest Whole’
    ‘Wholesome Whole’
    Is but embodiment of Mother.

    Finally from my forth coming poem Mother For Kids just 2 lines

    ‘Since God couldn’t be present everywhere
    He created Mothers.’

    A great tribute to a person who rules the entire World.
    Very sad indeed! Motherhood is the best certificate a woman ever gets?
