One Year

Today marks the first anniversary of my mom’s death.

One Year

A year’s gone by. I miss you so.
I don’t know why you had to go.
God took you up to be with Him
And now my eyes, with tears, are dim.
Oh, not for you. You’re happy now.
There’s no more care upon your brow.
I cry because I miss you, Mom.
My heart finds little peace or calm
Amid the storms that buffet me.
Still I am glad that you are free.
Please help me, Jesus, carry on
Now that my precious mom is gone.
You’ve taken her away from us.
She went with You without a fuss.
I need strength from the only One
Who helps me say, “Thy will be done.”

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
