April 5 prompt: an elegy for someone - Remembering Mama
Remembering Mama

The silent hours flow
into silent days and years.

I remember the joy in her eyes
the first time she attended
a Ridvan celebration.

I remember the delight
in her voice
when she chanted
God's Most Great Name.

Most of all
I remember her happiness
when she attended her first Nineteen-day Feast
and read a paragraph from
Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah.

Alzheimer's still her voice in 2012,
but it still echoes
through my dreams.
