Mother's Day In Heaven

My Mom went home to be with the Lord on September 22nd, 2005. This is her first Mother's Day In Heaven. I have just put up a page for this poem (see link below) on my poetry site (Home Of The Real McCoy) - so please pass this on to anyone you think may be encouraged or comforted by it. Thank you.

Mother’s Day In Heaven

It’s your first Mother’s Day in Heaven –
I'm so thankful that you're not alone;
As you behold the face of our Saviour,
And are blessed to worship at His throne.

Mom, I would love to send you flowers,
Though their fading glory could not compare
To the beautiful sights and sounds of Heaven,
And your very own mansion over there.

I never thought so much about Heaven,
As I have since you’ve gone home to that place –
Oh Mom, I miss you so very much,
And I long to see your precious face.

You see, this earthly home now seems more empty –
Its glitter and glamour can no more impress;
For Heaven is the place of God’s truest riches –
Where our Father only keeps the best!

Since you turned and trusted in the Saviour,
An amazing change has taken place;
Dwelling in the presence of Jesus now,
In Heaven - only because of His grace.

It’s your first Mother’s Day in Heaven –
With everlasting joy and peace up there.
Oh Mom, I miss you so much now,
But I know our reunion will be beyond compare.

Thank you Jerry, I will send a link to my siblings. I had not thought of Mothers Day much yet. I have always bought mother a corsage to wear to Church. I opened her deep freezer one day and it was full of corsages that I had given her over the years neatly packed away in the boxes that they came in. A flower will not last forever but a mothers love will and even though my mother has gone on to be with the Lord, I can still feel that love!

Thank you for that beautiful poem. My mom passed away April 23,2011 and I am struggling dealing with the fact that she is gone. This has helped me. Thank you, Liz
