The Strangest Gift

On a pre-dawn Christmas morn
Mum left this world
Mum, who loved Christmas, 
had one last gift
to give

With her passing 
she gave me 
the strangest 
and greatest gift – 

With her passing
she received 
her greatest gift –
she, too, got

With each passing year
she keeps giving
as I continue to receive gifts
in understanding 
our life and relationship

Merry Christmas, Mum
I love you and miss you
so much 
We will always be part
of each other.

Thank you.
