Taken to Heaven

One cold December morning, While she was sound asleep, Mom peacefully took her last breath, Leaving us behind to weep. She was taken by the angels, To heaven's pearly gates; Taken from her earthly home, To heavenly estates. Now she's walking on streets of gold, With steps as light as air, Feeling no pain or sorrow, Cause Jesus is with her there. 1/18/2013 For Black Eyed Susan's "Taken" contest

So sweet and sad, but I can't help feeling happy for her. From what I hear, those heavenly estates have a 100 percent positive feedback.

I really enjoyed your heartfelt poem. If you have a chance read my poem A New Dream. I think you will appreciate.

I love this piece. I lost my mother (and father) when I was young. I can empathize with this. I've written many poems about my mother if you care to read them.
