Honour Your Mother

My mom introduced me to the Lord. She would have been 87 today.

you gave me wings

and helped me fly

it was hard

to say good-bye

though just last year

you left this earth

you, dear one

who gave me birth

you’ll always be

a part of me

and my precious

family

Mom and Nan

and Nana, too

all these names

applied to you

i know your heart

is light as air

you’re in His presence

gift so rare

one day soon

i’ll see your face

but til then

my heart’s embrace

will hold you close

though you are gone

your legacy

is oh, so strong

(Today would have been my mom’s 87th birthday. She went to be with the Lord April 25, 2011.)
