Forty-six years ago in June,
I looked upon a Hawaiian moon.

The sky was filled with wonder and delight,
But the tides of change would soon bring new insight.

Many changes loomed on the horizon of my life.
The dark waters swept in,
And blew in heavy winds of trauma and strife.

Grief and loss filled my days and nights in that beautiful place,
Causing me never to forget my Mother's death or her lovely face.

Even though the times were happy and sad along that beautiful shore,
I have some wonderful photographs and memories over which to pore.

The beauty overcomes the sadness of that time,
And leaves me perfumed memories of that tropical clime.
