May Perpetual Light Shine

Patricia Spears Jones

About This Poem


"This poem was started on my birthday as I was thinking about my mother who died in 2013—that she may really be happier in heaven. The title is from a Christian prayer for the dead. The afterlife is contemplated in a range of beliefs, and for me the idea of returning to the celestial is very powerful."
—Patricia Spears Jones
