The poem(s) are below...




She smiled through the waves of pain
And held her mother's hand.
"Oh, Mama please don't cry," she said.
"And try to understand.
God wants me up in heaven now.
I hear him calling me.
There's lots of angels singing out.
It sounds so heavenly.

"Oh Mama please don't cry," she said.
"It's time for me to go.
You've given me your love and joy.
And Mom I love you so."
She wipes away her mama's tears
And looks into her eyes.
Then drifts into the Lord's sweet hands
As they say their goodbyes.

Now Mama hears her little girl;
"Oh, Mama please don't cry."
So brave and strong her little one:
The day they said goodbye.

    A brave little girl... I can't imagine losing one of my children. It would hurt too much to bear. But knowing she's in heaven is a comfort. Very touching poem, Robert... so good to see you posting again!

    WoW! Robert, you have most definitely penned a tear jerker. I found myself on the verge of tears when as I started to read this heart felt piece . As a mother I couldn't bare to think of this. But I know this happens all the time. You expressed that fact very well in this heartfelt write. A without a doubt seven:-) Alexis PS, Although I find this write to be bitter sweet it's good to see a post from you.
