The Poetry of John Paul II

Over This, Your White Grave
by Pope John Paul II

Over this, your white grave the flowers of life in white--
so many years without you-- how many have passed out of sight?
Over this your white grave covered for years, there is a stir in the air, something uplifting and, like death, beyond comprehension.
Over this your white grave oh, mother, can such loving cease?
for all his filial adoration a prayer:
Give her eternal peace--

The poem above written by the time he was twenty, show the heart of a motherless young boy through the pen of talented poet.
