Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 For Anne Ellender
At seventeen he would leave you
Alone to fend though he loves too
From where he now resides with one
With GOD who keeps your only son

One can't imagine the loss you feel
Each day you wake, life seems unreal
Without him now who brought his smile
To heart all yours, where he's compiled

The years you raised your infant son
The little boy who loved his mum
Where everyday you watched him play
Kept close an eye, let not him stray

You watched him grow to the young man
Handsome and strong number one fan
To you mother whose heart today
Does wish for more of yesterdays

Mothers are one, one of a kind
Who love unlike, distinct of mind
When children theirs do fall and bruise
A piece of them they feared they lose

In your heartache that seems forever
Be of good cheer for time will sever
By hands not yours to see again
You loving son, you question when

No not today, mother he loves
Maybe tomorrow when GOD speaks of
Your name to Robert who misses you
To bring together what parted two

But keep in prayer all that you feel
Let not his absence you breath now steal
For in your life you still have those
That love you too and him GOD chose

My wish today to leave my strength
With words though distance is at great length
Between you mother and her dear son
Prayers go out to heart undone


Dedicated to the memory of Robert Ellender
Loving son and hero to Mrs. Anne Ellender
