Happy Mother's Day Mom



                                                       Today I wear a white rose
                                                        instead of wearing red
                                                        in memory of my mother
                                                        many tears I have shed

                                                        I know she's  in heaven
                                                        this beautiful Mother's Day
                                                        up there with the angels
                                                        where roses bloom everyday

                                                        The sun is shining brightly
                                                         upon her golden crown
                                                         when God placed it there
                                                         heavenly joys did abound

                                                         No more sorrow and pain
                                                         her heartaches are all gone
                                                         although I miss her so
                                                         I know she's finally home

                                                         Heaven was made for mothers
                                                         around the great, white throne
                                                         where angels wait upon them
                                                         a deserving trait they own

                                                         The bond can not be broken
                                                          a mother's love is true
                                                          I wish a thousand moments
                                                          I could have back brand new

                                                          Today I wear a white rose
                                                           instead of wearing red
                                                           Happy Mother's Day Mom
                                                           we'll soon together wear red

  5. Thank you for this, Susie. Even after almost 25 years without my mama, it seems like only yesterday we quilted and sang together. I wish I could be more like she was.

  6. Hi Susie! I so loved your poem, this was such a special post. I especially liked the white and red rose picture at the bottom too. I have really been missing my mom this week as well. I'm so thankful that I have so many happy memories to remember. They make all the difference in the world. She comes alive again in all these sweet memories. It's funny when I think of Mom I never see her sick or old. She was sick and in pain for so many years but when I go through a photo album and see a picture of her in those days it shocks me because in my heart and mind she is the mom of my girlhood with her long auburn hair. I can almost smell her perfume and feel the way her hand used to intertwine in mine. :) It is such a wonderful blessing. I hope you are having a nice afternoon! With Love, Delisa :)

  7. Really sweet, Susie! Somehow, we never "get over" missing our Moms, do we? The older I get, the more I can't wait to see her again. Thank you for this beautiful reminder of where these Moms are and that we will see them again someday really soon!
