Her Irish Eyes Were Smiling by Genevieve Berretta

My mom Genevieve Stack and me Genevieve Stack Berretta

 

The sun shines brilliantly
A gentle breeze blows
“The blue of heaven shines reflected” *
As I walk
I think of you
Most days I do
And…
I recall your blue eyes

Your sweet smile

Loved

me

* From an ancient Irish Prayer my mother had given to me. I recited these words over and over in the last days of her life to comfort  her.
