Mom Please Listen
Mom, please listen to me
as I take the time to write.
I see parents struggling daily,
their pain is such a fight.
All of us who've gone
and left the rest of you behind..
We're ok, Mom, I promise..
Heaven is beautiful and God is kind.
You used to tell me that one day
God would call and take you home.
You told me you'd make me strong
so I would stand tall when alone.
But things happen, Mom
that does not go in our plans.
I wasn't scared, Mom,
When God held out his hand.
I didn't want to leave you
I didnt' have time to say good-bye
when the angels said "Come with us"
There wasn't any time to question why.
I've watched you daily, Mom
It hurts to see you cry.
I don't want you to be unhappy,
Just because we didn't get to say good-bye.
Tell others what I'm telling you,
So many parents need to know.
That Earth was just a layover
We had another place to go.
I know you miss me, Mom
It know your heart was broken in two.
But God really needed me
because my earthly life was through.
I'm always alongside you..
I smile and touch your hair.
I whisper "Mom, I love you"
You just can't see me there.
I'm the one that gently touches you
on your shoulder when you're sad.
I'm happy now that you finally found
God again, and are no longer mad.
Tell the parents, Mom, for me
that all of us kids are okay.
God had plans for our lives
when he called us home that day.
I love you Mom, I always will
and remember I'm not far away.
We're going to be together
When God calls out your name.
Thanks for posting the poem is beautiful, every time I read a poem like this it makes me think of how Jim would have felt if I had gone first. Knowing him he would have had as hard of a time as I am having and I would never want him to go through this kind of pain.
Love and Hugs
