Remembering Adam Cerkas – To Mom
There is a bond that’s created at birth, between a Mother and Son,
Nothing stronger exists, no relationship compares; it unites and transforms both into one.
The result is a force, a potent energy so great, it’s hard to relate to, indeed, it is an influence that forever lasts…
It’s the joys and the sorrows, the laughter and the tears, collectively, of each of their pasts.
This attachment I speak of, describe and hold high, lights the world as a candle, brightly, illuminating the sky.
Neither distance nor space nor eternity of time, can undo or erase this influence, so sublime.
So, as you read this, Mom, as you think of me and smile, just remember I Love you…
And not just for awhile. This connection we have, this awareness you see,
Exists entirely for us, just between you and me.
We can check in with each other any time, any day,
You can talk, you can feel, you can think, you can pray…
I’ll always be ready to listen for your call, no matter when or why,
It doesn’t matter at all… You have done some significant things for me when;
I was younger and troubled, seeking guidance and Love, again and again…
You were so cool and oh so right, you helped me out like a beacon in the night.
I’ll thank you and Love you for this for all time,
Your care was steadfast, it was calming; as a wind chime.
And so it goes, I set a course and cleared a trail…
At times I traveled fast, sometimes like a snail.
Your Love kept me going, your advice paved my way,
I managed and grew, and Loved you more, day by day.
I’m so proud of you Mom, but you have got to know,
That my life was on target, God planned it just so…
There will always be thoughts of the way things might have been, what changes may have occurred,
Outwardly or within… But that doesn’t matter as my life’s plan was set, my course was pre-determined, my future I met.
As Unc says, there’s always a reason for things, come as they may, we need to accept them and just continue to pray…
I want you to know of the life that is next, it is radiant like you, Mom, it’s been written in text… We all share the same hopeful future to live,
We all have to enhance our Love and ability to give… of ourselves and our time, our talents and our skills,
If we are to be elevated in God’s heavenly hills. For in Heaven there is a melody so enchanting and pure,
To comfort and console and protect and allure. I’ll see you there if you promise to call, and remember this well, Love does conquer all…
