My Mother


Today I took a journey 
I traveled to a place.
I saw my mother resting, 
A smile upon her face. 


I closed my eyes in sadness
and thought about our days. 
It all became so clouded,
It seemed to be a haze.


Then suddenly I felt a touch so soft upon my cheek
A gentle voice came through the haze it was so mild and meek.
A voice so soft, a voice so sweet
and this is what it said.


I'll always be your mother, 
I'll never go away,
For if you ever need me,
I'm just a thought away.

I raised you right
I know I did and this is how I know.
God would not have moved me from this earth, 
If I had not met His goal. 

For Amelia Santisteven, my Beloved Mother.who passed away on February 4th, 2007. 
Written for eulogy on February 8th, 2007
