You brought joy to my life
You made me feel so loved
We’d spend afternoons together
Walking the raspberries or
The flower beds around the house
Cinnamon rolls were your best
And jams and jellies too
Sitting out under the big shade tree
Watching the birds and kids play
Holidays and birthdays
What ever reason so we could be with you
Trips to town to pick out treats
The kids were wanting to spend
The nights so often
You were my mother-in-law
And the best Grandma too
Only last night in the wee morning
Did I find out that you had a visitor
The angels came for you
And carried you to heaven
My stomach knotted up
And tears began to flow
Spending wee hours in the night
Helping my kids to cope
With their sadness
This is what mothers do
Be their comfy blanket
One to fall back on
This is the way I remember you
A soft place to fall back on
Away from the noise
Only nature and love
Surrounding my memories of you
I shall always remember
Your soft gentle eyes
The way you smiled when I spoke
When I look up into the heavens
I have no doubt that you
And your husband
Will be holding hands
And looking down on us
And smiling now that
You two are back together.

The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
