    Peace, my heart, let the time for
    the parting to be sweet .
    Let it not be death but
    completeness .
    Let love melt into memory and
    pain into songs .
    Let the flight through the sky end
    in the folding of wings over
    the nest .
    Let the last touch of your hands
    be gentle like the flower of the
    night .
    Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a
    moment, and say your last words
    in silence .
    I bow to you and hold up my
    lamp to light your way .
    -Rabindranath Tagore

    Love you Mom . Holding you always in my heart .
