Tribute to Aunt Sybil


Today they bid a final farewell
To their mother
She was stolen from them
Years before by the mind thief dementia

It took her piece by precious piece
Shuttering her mind, finally
Locking her up
Her body a prison cell

Years passed within this body/cell
Finally death arrived, releasing the
Captive soul, she flew out soaring
Higher and higher, rising like a white dove
Joyfully ascending
To heaven's waiting embrace

Joan Ellen Gage
