My Mother

 

This Site is dedicated in

Loving Memory to

Rosemary Crossan

and the Crossan Family.

My Tribute

to her native

homeland, Scotland

that she loved so dearly.

 
     

     
 

 

 

To really love a woman…

rose_lavender150.gif

You got to give her some faith,

A little tenderness,

blueheaven350_1.jpg

Hear every thought - see every dream
And give her wings - when she wants to fly.

She will be there for you,

takin' good care of you.

Tá mo chroí istigh ionat !

 

To My Mother

 

Because I feel that,

in the Heavens above,

The angels,

whispering to one another,

Can find among their

burning terms of love,

None so loving and devotional

as that of

“My Mother”.

 

By Edgar Allan Poe

 

 

And fare thee weel,

my only luve!

And fare thee weel, a while!

And I will come again, my luve!

Tho’ it ware ten thousand mile!

 

By Robert Burns

To A Loved One Departed

 

Seraph! Thy memory is to me. Like some far-off enchanted isle.

In some tumultuous sea ~ some ocean vexed as it may be

With storms; but where, meanwhile, Serenest skies continually

Just o’er that one bright island, smile.

For ‘mid the earnest cares and woes,

That crowd around my earthly path.

(Sad path, alas, where grows not even one lonely rose!)

A soul at least a solace hath

In dreams of thee.

 

By Edgar Allan Poe

Born Glasgow (Gorbals), Scotland

4/29/30 - Died 4/26/84.

 

 
     

     
 

 

Mom was a Taurus and I am an Aries, and yes -

we frequently locked horns,

but that happens when two people love each other.

We were fierce in our fights,

 

 
     

     
 

 

Yet fiercer in our love.

She was my very BEST friend & my very WORSE enemy.

I guess God felt I needed a Guardian Angel

To keep me out of trouble, so He sent me Thoma.

THE LOVE & GUIDING LIGHT OF OUR LIVES.

So many people walk around

without any real meaning

in their lives. 

 

They seem half asleep,

even when they’re busy

doing things

they think are important. 

 

This is because

they’re chasing

the wrong things. 

 

The way you get meaning

into your life

is to devote yourself

to loving others,

 

Devote yourself

to your community

around you,

 

And devote yourself to creating

something that gives you

purpose and meaning.

 When true friends meet in adverse hour;
'Tis like a sunbeam through a shower.
A watery way an instant seen,
The darkly closing clouds between.

Sir Walter Scott

O My Luve's like a red, red rose

O My Luve's like the melodie

That's sweetly play'd in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass

So deep in luve am I

Perfect Love casts out Fear.

Where there is Love, there are

no demands,

no expectations,

no dependency.

I do not demand that

you make me happy;

My happiness doesn't lie in you-

If you left me,

I won't feel sorry for myself;

I enjoyed your company immensely,
