Leave-taking, 1948’


LIGIJA ‘LILY’ KYBARTAS (1924 June 29, Lithuania – 2021 May 6, Canada)

Just at the moment

when the cherry trees were weeping blossoms;

when spring was folding into summer;

just about Mother’s Day.

Just when the world was about to open its arms.

On a warm breeze towards the setting sun,

Lily quietly, willingly, flew off this earth.



by her husband Vaclovas (d. 2000),

by her daughter Sandra (Harvey), son Richard,

grandchildren Nicole (Trevor), Adam (Donna),

great grandchildren Amber Grace and Noah,

sisters Aldona and Filomena, niece Taida (Brian),

and by so many dear friends.
