Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 For Elsie
Her years would wear her down to this
Departing earth, surely you'll miss
Mother this loss all yours today
Mother you love and shall always

No words of mine but that of His
Can heal Holy what you will miss
Fragile she left but soon she'll be
Whole again by majesty

Goodbye is such a lonely word
Short lived will be what she has heard
That one day soon you'll see again
Mom, mother, your hearts Godsend

Concern yourself after you grieve
Hold to the Son, In Him believe
That all things good will come of this
This moment now will be short lived

You see passing is just a step
A step closer to what is left
For all as you will come to know
There is a Heaven today aglow

Her presence there has made it so
His will for now for you to know
That she is where she needs to be
Until you fill your destiny

Your work daughter will help fulfill
Yours yet to do so be not still
Know that I have in arms this day
Christina, mami, on this you prayed


In memory of Mrs. Celestina Figueroa
