~Beloved Mother, Sister and Friend~
God saw she was getting tired
and a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around her
and whispered "Come with Me".
With tearful eyes, we watched her suffer
and saw her fade away.
Although we couldn't bear to lose her,
We could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands laid to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the BEST.

~ I'll Be There ~
Please don’t feel guilty,
It was just my time to go.
I see you are still feeling sad,
And the tears just seem to flow.
We all come to earth for our lifetime,
And for some it’s not many years.
I don’t want you to keep crying,
You are shedding so many tears.
I haven’t really left you,
Even though it may seem so.
I have just gone to my heavenly home,
And I’m closer than you know.
Just believe that when you say my name,
I’m standing next to you.
I know you long to see me,
But there is nothing I can do.
But I’ll still send you messages,
And hope you understand,
That when your time comes to “crossover”,
I’ll be there to take your hand.
~ May 28, 2004 ~
If roses grow in Heaven,
Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my mother’s arms,
And tell her they’re from me.
Tell her I love and miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek,
And hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
But there is an ache within my heart,
Because I am missing her today.
