Dear Mom,

More than a few years have passed since we were all together last

Still I miss you so very much and nothing fills the hole left in my heart

And I do not even want to try, but one cannot live long in the past

Though my memories have grown dearer since we have been apart

Tempering the sorrow and loneliness that would consume my thoughts

And prevent me from experiencing the joy that still defines your life

I cherish your goodness and godliness, traits I have always sought

But when I think of the life you have now, I cannot help but smile

For your love for Christ Jesus gives blessed assurance of your destiny

And that is the legacy I hope to leave for my children and grandchildren

Thank you for all your prayers on my behalf and never giving up on me

I know your love for me is never-ending and I know I will see you again


Your child

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.”

Exodus 20:12 ESV
