TITLE: The Ageless Themes of Love

A story of a woman's family & their endless love that surrounds them. A love which carries them through thick & thin; feast & famine. Before & through the whirlwind that would follow - her funeral. The ageless theme of the love story of my mother - Carol Michelli (June 6, 1941 - November 10, 2004).
Time forgets the friends of days gone past.
Months give way to weeks and days.
Hours are stolen and replaced with minutes.
And in a whirlwind an entire lifetime is erased.

Life is placed on hold by the drop of a dime.
In an instant, what would last forever, stops in time.
Meals are forgotten, life takes a backseat.
Sleep is dismissed, selfless love begins to drive.

Where did it come from? Why has it brought us here?
When did it start? Why didn’t we see it?
So many people fill this place, yet so much loneliness.
Sadly, a prankster’s trick awaits every story.

What is this welling up deep inside of me?
How can so much darkness exist in such a strong tower?
In the midst of such a tempest storm, how can such a drought exist?
O death where is thy victory? Where is thy sting?

After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven!
And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said,
"Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this."
At once I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne stood in heaven,
with one seated on the throne. *

And in a whirlwind an entire lifetime is erased.

Time gives way to preparation of the Bride for her Bridegroom.
Fear gives way to doubt and doubt to guilt and soon that too abandons.
So many people so little time. So many faces and not enough love.
In the coldness, the ageless themes of love warm the heart.

Hummingbirds flitter amidst the orchids and Bird of Paradise.
A lunker lure snares a large mouth bass atop the lily pads.
Childhood sweethearts say goodbye to a lifetime of friends.
Anthony is the usher through this lovely garden.

The aisle of happily ever after becomes the valley of tears.
Colored glass hides the sharpness of the cold November winds.
These panes let the lights of the saints enter in.
Willie is calling us to Remember You Are Always On My Mind.

And in a whirlwind an entire lifetime is erased.

The doors to a future of forever tomorrows
Now lead to ageless themes of love.
The drive to a lifetime of happiness
Now leads to timeless subjects of longing.

Hours race away – minutes vanish - only seconds remain.
And in an instant – it is finished.

Sweethearts say goodbye to a lifetime.
Husbands love your wife. Hug her - kiss her.
Let your children see how much you love her.
Thus, the ageless themes of love continue
On their never-ending search for happiness.

*Rev 4:1-2
