A Mother (dedication) wings2fly2heaven
A Mother's Love
A Mother's love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.
For my beautiful fiance' and dear mother-in-law 'to be' who is knocking on the door to eternity.
I had to write something, it's what's keeping me sane tonight.
Baby, I'm scared, but I promise to remain strong for us.
Marcia, I'm not taking off the cross necklace you gave me, wearing it for you (for always)
and you know I love you.
Paul my love, this is for you.
I did not write this, not sure of the author, but the sentiments are perfect.
I lost my mother 10 years ago, and tonight is bringing flashbacks of the night
my mother left us. Ah.... the joy that could be felt in her room,
it literally had a certain glow, when she said Jesus was at the bedside with open arms.
Then the moment came....the world stopped spinning....all went quiet
I held her head, as she peacefully went to the Lord.
Thereafter, I leaned against the 7th floor hospital window and gazed into the summer night sky.
I then looked at the streets below. The traffic lights were so surreal...
and I realized....the world never stopped spinning..
