Sweet Maternal Sunshine (After Shannon L. Alder)…


sweet maternal sunshine radiating on the

daily you are forever etched in my soul as only

a mother can be, my journey through life and my ups and downs with people

are of my own doing and undoing that

if i reach deep into my heart i find that i am so very much the essence of you, i am you incarnate really

the outreach, the love, the open minded, the God fearing that you may have kept hidden to the very end when you reached out to the Lord as a matter

or as a means of 2nd coming baptismal. I do recall following your lead at that time in life

but i still became a lost pup chasing his tail into the abyss and grasping at the various straws of stray rays that which are the

Presbyterian, Catholicism, Native American, Buddhism, Baha’i, Reform Jewish, 7th Day Adventist, Baptist, New Age Spiritualism, Lutheran, Episcopalian, Poly-deist, Christian people

that i at many times over made and became a part of my life that

today i am reborn but not born again and i know you look down on me and can see

that I am at that stage now of pure positivism that I know resonated in your heart

when you walked this earth and we shared space hand in hand and

i looked up to you, my Hero, my Queen, my Mother and to this day I still look up to you from where you are now in the bounty of the beyond and you rejoice

with the rest of the family that has passed before and after with

The Lord Jesus Standing Near by and embracing you

In Loving Memory of my Sweet Maternal Sunshine,

Shirley Mae Snyder  April 27th 1941-February 7th, 2002.
