I LOVE YOU MOM Mom, please listen to me As I take time to write. I see parents struggling daily. Their pain is such a fight.. All of us who have gone on And left the rest of you behind.. We're ok, Mom, I promise.. Heaven is beautiful, and God is kind. You used to tell me that one day God would call and take you home. You told me you'd make me strong So I would stand tall when alone. But things happen sometimes, Mom That does not go in our plans. I wasn't scared, Mom, When God held out his hand. I didn't want to leave you. I didn't have time to say good bye When the angels said, "Come with us.", There wasn't time to question why. I've watched you daily, Mom. It hurts to see you cry. I don't want you to be unhappy, Just because we didn't get to say good bye. Tell the others what I'm telling you, So many parents need to know That Earth was just a lay over We had another place to go. I know you miss me, Mom I know your heart is broken in two, But God really needed me Because my earthly life was through. I'm always alongside you.. I smile and touch your hair. I whisper "Mom, I love you", You just can't see me there. I'm the one who gently touches you On your shoulder when you're sad. I'm happy now that you finally found God again, and are no longer mad. Tell the parents, Mom, for me That all of us kids are okay. God had plans for our lives When he called us home that day. I love you, Mom, I always will And remember I'm not far away. We're going to be together When God calls out your name.
