Reunion of My Mama and Me
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Reunion of My Mama and Me


radiant glow in my Mama's face

of furrowed brow and wrinkles not a trace

heavenly sparkle in her eyes

finished the race and won the prize

I envision her transformation

to truly see her will be jubilation

her spirit transcends space and time

inspired me to compose this rhyme

no more sickness, grief or pain

the victory she did claim

let go of what might have been

comforting, calming peace within

in the spirit realm she does reside

yet, she is ever by my side

once again her face I will see

reunion of my Mama and me

reunion of my Mama and me

Author's note: I had recently turned 25 when Mama (Carol) died.  I'm now 51 years of age.  Memories of her grow sweeter and more comforting as the days of my life unfold.  It is my earnest desire to bring comfort and peace to you today.  If your mama is alive, cherish her now.  Give nothing and no one the power to cause a rift between you.  Embrace her in your arms now and may you embrace each other in sweet memories later, until the glorious arrival of your own reunion day.

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.
