~ Dearest Mother ~
by Jan Kennedy
a rose petal was your loving touch.
Dearest Mother, I loved you so much.
I have such fond memories I cherish—
loving memories, I know shall not perish.
It seems like only yesterday,
you caressed me in your tender way.
Your love was the bond holding us together.
You saw me through life's stormy weather.
When I think of you—do you hear my thoughts?
Do you listen sitting at the foot of the cross?
I am assured for me you do wait—
when my time comes, we’ll celebrate.
I miss you so very much;
I long for your tender touch.
I know I’ll see you—I won’t hesitate.
I'll meet you inside those pearly gates.

Happy Mother's Day, Mama.
