POEMS FOR THE LOSS OF A MOTHER - Page 2
Come With Me
The Lord saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be,
So He put his arms around you
‘Come with me’
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer
And saw you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating
Your beautiful smile at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
He always takes the best.
It’s lonesome here without you
We miss you so each day.
Our lives just aren’t the same
Ever since you went away.
When days are sad and lonely
And everything goes wrong
We hear you gently whisper,
‘Cheer up and carry on.’
Each time we see your picture,
You seem to smile and say,
‘Don’t cry, I’m in God’s keeping,
We’ll meet again someday.’
She is Gone
You can shed tears that she is gone,
Or you can smile because she lived,
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared,
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on,
You can cry and close your mind be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
Today I left my loved ones and as I go I pray,
Lord don’t let them grieve too much, because I’ve died today.
Let there be no wailing echoing the halls,
the same halls that held laughter and answers to my calls.
I pray they all take comfort accepting the true way
and listen when I tell them these three things today.
Love will be forever, a promise that will last.
So love me more than ever now my time with you has passed.
And last of all remember the glowing love to be,
when our eyes meet once again, for all eternity.
That Wonderful Mother of Mine
The moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of that wonderful mother of mine.
The birds never sing but a message they bring
Of that wonderful mother of mine.
Just to bring back the time, that was so sweet to me,
Just to bring back the days, when I sat on her knee.
I pray every’ night to our Father above,
For that wonderful mother of mine.
I ask Him to keep her as long as He can
That — wonderful mother of mine.
There are treasures on earth, that made life seem worthwhile,
But there’s none can compare to my mother’s smile.
You are a wonderful mother, dear old Mother of mine.
You’ll hold a spot down deep in my heart,
‘Till the stars no longer shine.
Your soul shall live on forever,
On through the fields of time.
For there’ll never be another to me,
Like that wonderful Mother of mine.
A Mother’s Message From Heaven
I see you my darlings, all the time,
I know everything you do.
Would you believe, my dearest children
I’m even closer now to you!
I can see inside your minds,
Indeed, inside your hearts,
I even know you better now,
Than I did before, sweethearts.
I’ve always loved you – you know that,
But maybe now I love you more,
I love the adults that you’ve become,
Just as I loved the child before.
I know how much you miss me,
Well, I surely miss you, too.
I miss our talking and our laughing,
And all we used to do.
Whether you are six or sixty,
You’ll always be my precious child.
You’re the babies that I carried
And the adults that helped me smile.
What you need to understand,
Though death has taken me away,
Is that I’ve not left you, my darlings.
I am still with you today.
My family, I could never leave you;
God, of course, would not want that.
Physically, we are apart,
But our hearts are still attached.
I love you all the time,
You cannot get away from me.
That’s the way a Mother is
Right until eternity.
Every day I’m with you
I see you from above,
And I want for you to know
How very much you’re dearly loved.
God Saw You Getting Tired
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around you and whispered ‘Come With Me.’
With tearful eyes we watched you, slowly fade away,
Although we loved you dearly, we would not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
When I Am Gone
When I am gone, release me – let me go
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years
I gave you love, you can only guess
how much you gave me in happiness
I thank you for the love each have shown
but now it is time I traveled alone.
So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must,
then let your grief be comforted by trust
It is only for a while that we must part
so bless those memories within your heart.
I will not be far away, for life goes on.
so if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you cannot see or touch me, I will be near
And if you listen with your heart, you will hear
All of my love around you, soft and clear.
Then when you must come this way alone,
I will greet you with a smile and Welcome you home
We Only Wanted You
They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
We never wanted memories,
We only wanted you.
A million times we needed you,
a million times we’ve cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place
no one can ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
We’d walk the path to heaven
to bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.
