~ Mother ~

Please know that I am happy and I long for your happiness too

Although your time seems long, for me its as if time never moved

And please, consider my heart, my soul, it does shine for you

As I think of the love we share, and hold for eternity too

The day I entered Heaven, I kept a part of you

And left for you a part of me, that will last your whole life through

When you join me, dear Mother, our reunion will be so dear

I'll run to you and find you, waiting for me here

Then for all eternity our Heavenly lives will ring~

With the peace and love abounding as the sweet and dear Angels sing...

The young mother set her foot on the path of life. "Is this the long way?" she asked. And the guide said: "Yes, and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it. But the end will be better than the beginning." But the young mother was happy, and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years. So she played with her children, and gathered flowers for them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and the sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried, "Nothing will ever be lovelier than this." Then the night came, and the storm, and the path was dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother drew them close and covered them with her mantle, and the children said, "Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come." And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to the children, " A little patience and we are there." So the children climbed, and when they reached the top they said, "Mother, we would not have done it without you." And the mother, when she lay down at night looked up at the stars and said, "This is a better day than the last, for my children have learned fortitude in the face of hardness. Yesterday I gave them courage. Today, I have given them strength." And the next day came strange clouds which darkened the earth, clouds of war and hate and evil, and the children roped and stumbled, and the mother said: "Look up. Lift your eyes to the light." And the children looked and saw above the clouds an everlasting glory, and it guided them beyond the darkness. And that night the Mother said, "This is the best day of all, for I have shown my children God." And the days went on, and the weeks and the months and the years, and the mother grew old and she was little and bent. But her children were tall and strong, and walked with courage. And when the way was rough, they lifted her, for she was as light as a feather; and at last they came to a hill, and beyond they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide. And mother said: "I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know the end is better than the beginning, for my children can walk alone, and their children after them." And the children said, "You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates." And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates closed after her. And they said: "We cannot see her, but she is with us still. A Mother like ours is more than a memory. She is a living presence." ~ Author Unknown ~

~ Searching My Soul ~

Today as I searched my soul for awhile
And thought of the love my heart holds for you

How you bring me flowers and sunshine
And love me so true, even when I am blue~

I wondered about life and all of the strife
How a smile can turn to a frown

How life can be so peaceful
And yet the walls can come crumbling down..

All the years of love, devotion and passion
Entertwined with anger, toil and compassion

The delightful smiles, the heartbreak of sorrow
Reflection of yesterdays and hopes for tomorrows~

In my heart where I contain it all together
I still see me and you forever

I pick a flower for you, to show my love
For eternity will love you if not here then from above~

This life may be fleeting and as with all things of this earth
I know in my heart for all it is worth

That you are my one and only desire
And my love for you will be sustained like a never ending fire~

I can't promise you flowers and rainbows all the year through
But I can promise that I will always unconditionally love you

When the tides are toiling their masses of waves~
And life gets as rough as the sea

Remember in my heart I will hold a flower for you
To remind you that I will always love "thee.."
