Last Goodbye

God gave me another poem about my mom.


Last Goodbye

I sat there & I held your hand
As you slipped from this earth.
How do you say your last goodbye
To one who gave you birth?
I love you & I’ll miss you so.
It hurts so much right now.
I know I have to carry on
And yet, I wonder how.
I’m glad you’re now in heaven with
So many you have lost.
You’re not in pain or weak or frail
Though now, we pay the cost.
You’re with your father, daughter, son,
And many, many more.
For us, you now are one of those
We love, who’ve gone before.
So please forgive us if we cry;
It’s hard here with you gone.
With God’s great mercy, comfort, grace,
We’ll try to carry on.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney
