Two Years

Two years ago today, God called my mom home.

Two Years

Two years ago, God called you home
And took you to His side.
Since then I know that I’ve lost count
Of all the tears I’ve cried.
I miss you so and yet, I know
That you are happy there.
And though you live in heaven now,
I know that you still care.
I still can feel the love you gave
Through all my growing years.
That love is still a healing balm
Applied, at times, through tears.
The hole that’s left inside my heart
Cannot be filled on earth.
For nothing can replace the love
Of she who gave me birth.
So still with tears, I have to say,
“My Lord, Thy will be done.
I miss my mom, but know she’s safe
In heaven with Your Son.”

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

    Grief isn’t easy. Only God’s love and grace and mercy will get us through it.
