A Place in My Heart

A Place in My Heart


there's a place in my heart
reserved just for you
to honor your love I'll always be true

where did the time go
you've been in Heaven almost 23 years
I can remember you now without any tears

I'm happy and content here on Earth
but, oh, how I long to see your face
wrinkles gone with nary a trace

what a joyous reunion we'll have
such a glorious day it will be
reunited in Heaven ~ my Mama and me

well, sometimes I do still cry
my Mama's love will never die
even from Heaven she sends her love

In remembrance of Mama ~ Carol

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
