Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 With my last breath

At 82 I would depart from where I slept leaving six parts
Of me each one special I love and children yours I took care of
My life with you dear sons and daughters, Grandchildren too this great grandmother
Would come to know upon bestowed, love unlike before I'd go

Like friend more mother and father too, I did my best for each of you
When younger were the days time stole, as years went by my story told
I breathed you in each passing day took tine sharing what in me stayed
Before leaving as you did pray the gates of Heaven I saw today

Healthy became what once was not my appetite I once forgot
Is now where it once use to be if you were here you too would see
Mother and my sister dear are standing by the gates I near
As streets of Gold become the path where I now walk with them at last
Be of good cheer and cry no more where once a sign read by the door
Room 113 my name on wall, in unit D, I am no more

There is a banquet and a seat, where souls rise to their feet
They honor me upon arrival Eternal life not just survival
And though not here you will someday pass on sharing you're blessed day
When GOD calls your name to come to live and feast in His Kingdom

In memory of our beloved mother Elvira Flores
Love, Noelia, Judy, Maria, Edwin, Alva, Luis

Forever in our hearts, Forever in Gods care
