A Poem

” When the Heavens Open Up”

To My Heavenly Children

From their Mother.

As the Heavens open up its gates,

you enter as you have been called.

Our Lord seeks your face,

Our Lady seeks your touch.

You turn once to say good-bye

and you whisper:

” I will see you again, Mommy,

when the Heavens open up the gates for you.

While we’ll wait to meet again,

seek me in the sun that radiates you,

in the wind that embraces you,

in the music that delights you,

and in the heart of those that love you,

for there I will be as I await for you.”

Maria Cecilia Escobedo
