Departed Son is sadly thought of
as his calendar date comes again
a date I shall always treasure
as I heard a gentle cry from him
cakes with candles shall come here no more
presents unshared with paper that curled
Mother’s tears come as her heart is tore
as she remembers her loving son -

- Rhoda Galgiani
