Unfinished Portrait


Henny van Dijk Rooijakkers
(1927-2009)

It's almost a year ago that my beloved mother-in- law passed away.
I started an oil portrait of her, but never got to finish it.
I will soon.


At the blowing of the wind and the chill of the Winter,
We remember You.

At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of Spring,
We remember You.

At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of Summer,
We remember You.

At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of Autumn,
We remember You.

At the beginning of the year and when it ends,
We remember You.

When we are weary and in need of strength,
We remember You.

When we're lost and sick of heart, We remember You.

When we have joy we crave to share,
We remember You.

When we have decisions that are difficult to make,
We remember You.

When we have achievements that are based on yours,
We remember You.

As long as we live, you will live
for you are now part of us
As we remember You.
