Gracie's Prayer

Gracies's Prayer  

.   (Dear Mommy)

Amazing grace, how sweet the taste.
A song I dread up to these days.

Mommy can you hold my hands?
Show me how to make God understand?
Hold my hands and show me how to pray, 
and maybe than he will listen to the words I say!

Mommy how do I ask God, 
If I can keep you for another day.
I promise this time to pray everyday!

Mommy can you share them beautiful and sweet words before you say good-bye.
I thank you for the shoes, you showed me how to tie.

Mommy now what am I going to do when I want to talk and be with you?"
Now who's gonna take care of me when I'm feeling blue?

Mommy Can you still protect me?"

Like them days you defended me, no matter the trouble I was in.
Mommy!  That is when you thought me the meaning of sin.

Mommy you always explained the reasons why I was here.
You also taught me, how to face away from fear.
Now how am I going to find my way home?
Are you still going to whisper them words  that says, "I'M NOT ALONE!"


Mommy why is everyone offering their sympathy?
Nothing compares to the way your heart was supportive when it came to me.

Mommy how can you make the suffering stop?
Mommy you are all I got.
Mommy I have no cure for what is in you.
All I can offer is what's in me. 
Mommy can we go and play outside. 
Please hold my hand and take me with you to the other-side.
The place you always spoke of when it came to Amazing Grace.
The sweet surrender resting place..


Mommy I'm here to visit you again.
A place where baskets are offered by family and friends.
Mommy can I stay here forever with you?
Hold me the way you use too.
Mad, and sad you washed away my tears.
Reading a book called "The 3 little pigs."
Mommy can you sing that lullaby song of praise?

Mommy can you hear me?

***** (metaphor)

Digging deep into the ground, 
There and only there can you be found.
One last breath, shared with the open skies.
Mommy can I go with you?

*dedicated  to  my mom*

    PD This is so emotionally sad and powerful. The love for your mom is so evident in each line and comes from your heart. Thank you for the nice comment on my Lonely Life poem.

    You sure no how to make a man cry. This must have been very hard to write and then yet it sounds like there is forgiveness and a never ending love for her. I weep at the thought of my own mother going to die sooner than I want her to. This is and always will be one of my favorites...Hugs...Roger

    This... was... beautiful. I'm sure your mom would be proud of you and this dedication written for her! This is one of the most honest and sincerest poems I have read on this site... hats off to you, my friend! A fabulous read that oozes with emotion... you are a poet not simply of the mind, but of the heart.

    Linda, you are a true poet! Always from the heart, a heart made from gold. You inspire me to be like you, but even if I tried there is only you. Let me just enjoy and keep reading through. Love~Ali

    Still waiting,PD> you HAVE to write a poem and rise up as Phoenix. I forgot the other word you wanted to use with it, but you know what I mean!

    Sorry PD I have not only missed this Gem of a Poem but words also, which provide lot of strength and courage, when you are in such a situation but I fully agree with the beautiful and great words by Debbie Guzzi 'mothers don't look in the mirror and you see them, often as you fall to sleep you see and hear them'. Love and best wishes always.. ...Ravindra....Poet D

    This is one of the most heart touching words I have ever seen on Poetry Soup my friend. Great dedication is peeping out from every line and words of this most wonderful and lovely lines written while remembering a mother and her role in any one's life. The last stanza tells a different story my friend, please clarify? I can understand how heavy you would be mind and heart. What a wealth and life time treasure parents are my friend. There can be no better and greater friend like mother..Conti.

    Such sad questions from a child who seems to know what is happenng. Makes me wonder if you went through this PD; hard to imagine having to deal with a situation like this but you touched me with this one. Luv, Lizzie

    Dear little Gracie, this rhyme is just for you. I hope that it will bring you love when you don't know what to do. May it be a reminder that one day you will find her. And no longer will you have to feel so blue.

    I think my Mom visited this morning. Half awake I heard her say Bob, Bob, Bob. She sounded so young and perfect. Before that she came back to us in a dream. She sent someone to give me a pair of Levi jeans. I was wandering around at a new job with no pants on.:) Dreams, whata ya gonna do? This was the first time I had any remote sense of her since she passed.

    I'm so sorry you can't be here as much as you like. It's very good of you to be at the hospital. I don't know if I could spend a whole day knowing the person I was visiting was in a coma and had no idea I was there. Try to be positive. I know it's difficult. well, goodnight, Irma.

    Irma, how is your mom? Do you visit the hospital a lot? Happy Easter. I am getting off here soon. Lots of cleaning to do for seeing family tomorrow.
