Come Spring

Come spring, there is a lovely picture that I see
I cling to this very hope, my mother waiting for me
It leads me home, I pause and breath a prayer
Thanking God for his great promise she’ll be there

When the roses bloom again and the birds sing
On heaven’s bright shore, oh what joy it will bring
To see her smile and feel her warm embrace
My mama’s been gone to long, I miss her sweet face

With the sunlight shining upon her snow, white hair
Beside her flowers, fragrance drifting in the air
Just to be in her presence will warm all my days
I will cherish each one and give God the praise

To see her well without heartaches and pain
The way I remember her, all else is mundane 
We will walk together down streets of pure gold
So much to say, more than my heart can hold

In a land of silver grasses that sparkle with dew
My mama is waiting patiently for me to come too
She taught me young how to spread each tiny wing
Oh what a joyous reunion, come spring

Tomorrow the 19th would've been my mama's 87th Birthday. She's spending it in heaven again this year. I miss her more each passing day but long to see her smiling face. Happy Birthday Mama, I love you!!

Here's wishing all of you a Happy Easter


  1. Susie, I can relate to this poem. My mother was born 100 years ago on the 12th and has been gone for almost 27 years. I'm so thankful for my Christian mother.

    Are you feeling some better?

    1. Thank you Charlotte . It doesn't matter how long they've been gone we miss them every passing day. Yes, I'm doing some better. I hope you have a nice Easter.

  2. Susie, this is such a beautiful tribute to your beloved mother. Your mother (your guardian angel) is smiling now!

  3. What a beautiful tribute to your Mom. I am sure your mom is listening and is happy that you wrote a poem in her honor. Take care of yourself as that is what your mom would have wanted you to do.
    Happy Easter.

  4. Susie, I love this tribute to your mother. I think we never stop longing for hugs from our mothers. Blessings for a beautiful Easter Sunday. xoxo, Susie
