A Mother's Day Wish From Heaven
Dear Mr. Hallmark,
I am writing to you from heaven,
and though it must appear
A rather strange idea,
I see everything from here.
I just popped in to visit,
your stores to find a card
A card of love for my mother,
as this day for her is hard.
There must be some mistake I thought,
every card you could imagine
Except I could not find a card,
from a child who lives in heaven.
She is still a mother too,
no matter where I reside
I had to leave, she understands,
but oh the tears she's cried.
I thought that if I wrote you,
that you would come to know
That though I live in heaven now,
I still love my mother so.
She talks with me, and dreams with me;
we still share laughter too,
Memories our way of speaking now,
would you see what you could do?
My mother carries me in her heart,
her tears she hides from sight.
She writes poems to honor me,
sometimes far into the night
She plants flowers in my garden,
there my living memory dwells
She writes to other grieving parents,
trying to ease their pain as well.
So you see Mr. Hallmark,
though I no longer live on earth
I must find a way,
to remind her of her wondrous worth
She needs to be honored,
and remembered too
Just as the children of earth will do.
Thank you Mr. Hallmark,
I know you'll do your best
I have done all I can do;
to you I'll leave the rest.
Find a way to tell her,
how much she means to me
Until I can do it for myself,
when she joins me in eternity.

In Memory of Ben
The baby words that I could speak
before I left you the other day
Were sweet to you, yet with those words
I cannot say what I want to say.
My spirit, grown as it was before,
Would seek you now...to ease your pain.
Oh, Mother, if you could but know
My happiness, your grief would wane.
When I awoke the other day
it was like morning in my room...
And sunrise colors blended there
like from a great eternal loom.
I looked for you and daddy too...
But the angels came around my bed...
And then a Man who shone so bright...
He picked me up and hugged me tight.
He took me with Him in His arms...
and people cried and touched my hair...
And squeezed my hands and kissed my cheeks...
They were so glad to see me there.
I live now in a heavenly place...
more beautiful than all the earth...
Even the best and happiest place
where I lived with you, ever since my birth.
Here I shall always hear kind words...
And never fall and skin my knees...
Or have a fever of a cold...
And never, never will grow old.
And never will I feel a fear
or have bad dreams in the dark of night...
Or cry with longing, hurt or shame...
or be heart-broken, or lose my sight.
But always abide in warmth and love...
That's all there is here up above...
Yet, that was all I knew with you...
and I want you to know this too
That even as my life was short...
Your gift to me was not in vain...
Oh, Mother, it is hard to learn...
that Glory hides behind our pain!
Don't Cry Mommy
Don't cry Mommy,
Mommy, please don't cry.
Because the day we left your loving arms
We didn't say good-bye.
We're still here with you
And Daddy too...we just wanted you to know
Although our souls have left this earth,
There's a part of us that could not go.
It's the love we built
Between us Mom, The memories that we shared,
These wonderful things God let us leave behind
Because of how much you cared.
Only God knows how much we miss you Mommy
And the time we spent on Earth.
The way you loved to hold us close,
Ever since our Birth.
And He knows ow much you miss us Mom,
God promises we'll be together again,
For all eternity, and that's a long time.
We will see you then.
So don't cry Mommy,
Mommy, please don't cry.
Because the day we left your loving arms.
We didn't say...
WHERE DO I BELONG ON MOTHER'S DAY
I'm facing a dilemma
That I don't know what to do
Looking at Mother's Day
And another year without you
Sometimes I feel I don't belong
In the circle of my friends
Because my heart doesn't feel
Like keeping up with all the trends
Sometimes I wish I could be different
And face the day with a smile
I try and do that often
But it gets hard once in a while
I look all around me
And see kid's shopping for their mom's
And all I can think about this May
Is how you never made it to your prom
My friends ask me to join them
For lunch and sometimes dinner too
But where do I fit in
When I'm so lonely without you?
Sometimes I feel I just don't fit in
With the rest of the world
And yet I know that others
Also lost son's and little girls
I watch the ones who are further
Down the road than how far I've came
And I hope that one day I can see
Mother's Day without tears like rain
I wonder where I belong
And whom do I belong to
Although you're not here with me
I'll always be Mom to you
So on this Mother's Day
When the world celebrates as it does
I will remember all the things
And the way things once was
I miss you my child
I miss you with all my heart
And though I don't know where I belong
I think I'm about to start
For a mom is a woman
Who loves her child deep in her heart
And though on earth they are parted
That love stays forever in her heart
I'll think of you this Sunday
And I'll smile when I do
For God made me your Mom
And I'll always belong to you
I wish you all a "gentle" Mother's Day
