A Song for Mother

This poem “A Song for Mother” was inspired by a musical solo, a young man played on the saxophone at my Mom’s church, St. Mark Baptist Church in Columbia, SC. I wrote it and had the privilege and honor to read it to her for Mother’s Day. She was delighted and loved it. She went to be with the Lord on May 28, 2012. I read this poem at her Home going service, June 2, with revisions.

A SONG FOR MOTHER!

A SONG FOR MOTHER FROM GOD’S OWN HEART - WRITTEN IN ETERNITY - SAYING FROM HIM SHE WILL NEVER DEPART - A SONG OF HIS GREAT LOVE STREAMING FROM HIS MAJESTIC THRONE ABOVE - WHISPERING WORDS OF MERCY AND GRACE - AS MOTHER APPROACHES TO SEE HIS GLORIOUS FACE - A VIRTUOUS WOMAN WHO IN SPITE OF SICKNESS, TESTS AND TRIALS - STILL SANG HIS PRAISES ALL THE WHILE….

A SONG FOR MOTHER PRECIOUS AND ELECT - A LADY OF GRACE COMMANDING RESPECT - BEAUTIFUL AND GRAND SHE STANDS - BEFORE HEAVEN’S DOOR - SHE KNEW THERE WAS SO MUCH MORE - A SONG FOR MOTHER - SUNG BY THE ANGELS HEARD IN THE ATMOSPHERE - A SONG TO INSPIRE AND ENCOURAGE ALL WHO HEAR - A SONG FOR MOTHER THAT SAYS JESUS LOVES US MORE THAN WE CAN IMAGINE - HE HAS MANSIONS UNTOLD - AS HIS PROMISES UNFOLD - EYE HAS NOT SEEN OR EAR HEARD WHAT IS IN STORE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN FAITHFUL AND TRUE - AS WE PRESS IN FOR A BETTER VIEW - RECEIVING AND BELIEVING HIS WORD - THE PROMISES OF THE SON OF GOD - OUR SAVIOR AND REDEEMER….

MY SONG FOR MOTHER IS LOVE AND GRATEFULNESS - REMEMBERING THE JOY, LAUGHTER AND LOVE WE SHARED - I AM CELEBRATING MY MOTHER WHO LOVED SO MUCH AND CARED - SHE HAS ANSWERED THE LORD’S CALL - THAT SAID COME HOME - AND REST IN PEACE AND SERENITY - REST IN THE BOSOM AND WARM EMBRACE OF FATHER GOD - REST IN HIS ETERNAL AND ENDURING LOVE - GOOD NIGHT, MOTHER….

YOU WILL FOREVER BE

THE QUEEN OF MY HEART

I LOVE YOU, YOUR DAUGHTER

I WILL SEE YOU IN THE MORNING!

About the Poet
I was born in Lexington County, SC. I lived in Jacksonville, Florida for many years.I recently moved back home to my home town, Columbia, SC. I have one daughter, Kimberly. I now have two brothers. One went to be with the Lord in January, 2010. My Mom went to be with the Lord, Memorial Day May 28, 2012. Among the things I am grateful for and remembering about her is my salvation. She was a strong passionate woman of God all of her life and a beautiful loving Mother. I was saved and baptized in the ocean in Rota, Spain. What an experience that was! Holy Spirit chased me and drew me to Himself, while I was alone in another country. I surrendered to the Lord, and His peace flooded my soul. It was so beautiful. I am so happy he saved me and redeemed me. I am so happy to share these poems from His heart and mine. Poetry is a release and has inspired and encouraged me and many who have read my poetry. I was blessed to write for a number of years on Crossway Publications and had over 300 poems that I wrote on the site. God has increased my gift with more beautiful poetry. In 2005 my poetic writings seemed to catch the fire of God and have a deeper meaning. I thank God for this chance to share my poetry with all. God Bless...
