Heaven Needed Mom
So many things of Mom I miss–
Her gentle hug and tender kiss
I still can feel her warm embrace
And picture yet her loving face.
A mother’s tasks are never done
And Heaven must have needed one
For angels came and took her hand
And led her to God’s
She’s surely kept quite busy there
While brushing little angel’s hair
And making sure they’re dressed just right
Not staying out too late at night.
Although there’s sadness, this I know–
She’s waiting there, her face aglow
I close my eyes and I can see–
Her arms still open
wide for me.
A Celebration of her life will Friday, August 28, at 10:00 A.M. at her residence located at 525 Gavilan Canyon Road in Ruidoso.
