Mom, today I’m missing you,
Like many days before.
Five years ago, you left this life
Sometimes, it seems like more.
I see some little doodad or
A trinket you would love
And have stop and tell myself
That you are up above.
With Jesus, you see more delights
Than any here on Earth,
I know that you are happier.
I can’t say what that’s worth.
God gives me sweet reminders that
You’re safe within His care.
When I am struggling with this life
And wish that you were there.
Enjoy yourself in heaven, Mom.
We’ll join you in our time.
I know you’re busy writing psalms
In meter and in rhyme.
I just can’t wait to hear them and
Recite them for the Son.
For now, I’ll say, “I miss you, Mom.
My love. God’s 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 © is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!
I’m sure that your Mom knows of every poem that you write. She was an incredible woman and so are you.
