The Sun sent her a ray

In reaction to the wonderful yet sad reaction to his mother's death of my friend, the activist Andy Gunderson.

The Sun Sent Her a Ray.

She lay down to sleep
begging her family not to weep
while the sun was shining in her window.
The sun sent her a ray
that drew her away
to where the light is waiting with a smile
 
Oh those gates swung open
all her loves awaiting
sending a spirit of joy echoing
with the smell of jasmines lingering
...and a breeze carrying her soul
to fresh places where this world falls behind.
