I know Your ways are far beyond
What I can understand,
Like when You reached down to Mom’s room
And gently took her hand.
I knew I had to let her go;
I couldn’t make her stay,
But God, You know how very much
I miss her to this day.
I have faith that You did what’s best
In taking her with You,
And I will simply trust You, Lord.
I know You’ll see me through.
Though pain still grips my heart and I
Miss having her with me,
I trust You to take care of her
With love, eternally.
Please tell her that I love her still
And even through my tears,
I praise You, and await the day
Your Blessed Son appears.

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!
