Heavenly Tea

Heavenly Tea
My mother, God bless her, who has now passed on, would unconsciously sip tea from which ever cup was closest to her.

We thought about Mama this morning.
My dear wife had drained her first cup,
And wondered allowed if she actually had.
I said, "Yes! Unless Mama turned up."

Ah yes, she remembered my mother,
Who would sip from the first cup to hand,
Diminishing each of all cupfuls
Not realizing - you understand.

She wondered, "If tea's served in Heaven?"
The answer - well none here have known,
But if they do I can sure tell you,
My Mama will be right at home.
