As I reflect on my past and remember things that happened over the years
I often stop and think about the problems I caused. I can still see her tears.
My mother accepted a child, whose parents had left her for dead.
I couldn't understand. Why couldn't she have given birth instead?
The love I felt for my mother most will never even know.
I was blinded by a wall i had built. My feelings could never show.
Now that my mother s with you I've learned to accept a few things
With Jesus now in my heart I can see what true happiness means.
Though I can never go back and change those things i put you through for some reason God still loves me and some day I will be with you.
To those who know me now you have seen a change in me.
Do you know someone today who is just as lost as me?
Please go to that person now. Don't wait even one more day. Don't worry about a single thing.. God will tell you what to say.
As this poem comes to an end I hope some day you will find
Yes at times I can be a real pain. Yet there are those who know me as being simply kind.
I asked Jesus to come into my heart. He could change me in every way.
I guess that's what my mother always knew and wanted to say.
In loving memory of my mother, Melba Dean
