She paused as he approached her
slowly taking her soft gentle hand
in his strong embracing one
to clasp forever.....
He paused as she walked towards him
she came up to him and gave him her hand
standing on her toes to give him the kiss of life....
Mother paused one last time
before she gazed gently at me
enveloping me in her warmth
and then, let go...
Pause- the magical moment between reflection and deed.
