It Was Your Love

You watched me as a child
Grow stronger every day;
It was your love that fed me
And sped me on my way. 
Each night I slept securely 
Beneath a blanket warm and snug,
Though, often you sat beside me 
And taught me of God’s love.

As I grew older you never from me left, 
Your strengths became mine;
Your kindness, your stubbornness,
Your peace of mind.
You helped me when I faltered; 
Without question you bore my griefs;
You gave to me true happiness
When there was no peace.

I hope you heard me mother;
Here, I sit beside you now
Upon this bed you lay unable
To see me smile or frown.  
I have to leave, yet this I pray, 
That Jesus would come
For you today.

You watched me as a child
Grow stronger every day;
It was your love that fed me
And sped me on my way.
