  • A Prayer For Mama

    • Published: December 2011

    in Dying Poems

    My dear sweet heavenly father, I come to you today
    with faith and hope; I ask, send an angel Mama's way.
    I know her time is near and soon you'll take her home
    to stroll across the streets of gold where other angels roam.

    Poem About Wanting To See Mom In Heaven

    in Mourning Poems

    If heaven had a window and God granted me a view
    of all the beauty it beholds, I'd only look for you.
    I'd listen for your laughter that was always music to me.
    Your beautiful hair and hazel eyes are what I'd wish most to see.

  • My Mother, My Angel

    • Published: September 2012

    in Mother Death Poems

    Once upon a time an angel held my hand.
    She wiped away my tears and helped me understand
    Our time on Earth is brief; there are lessons to be learned.
    Each precious day God gives us, another page is turned.

    Poem Encouraging Others To Make The Most Of Each Day

    in Meaningful Poems

    If I were to leave this world today, I'd want to be remembered, it's true,
    for going that extra mile just to show my love for you.
    I'd want for you to be proud of me and know I always tried.
    When you hurt, I did, too; your tears I also cried.

    in War Poems

    Amidst the desert sands dawnings just begun,
    battle rages on, bombing veils the rising sun.
    A boy not yet a man holds a picture to his heart
    of loved ones not forgotten though oceans keep them apart.

    War has never been a better way to resolve conflicts but peace. For while war leave people displaced, maimed and killed, peace sure does the reverse. This poem is so touching. I love it.

  • Mama's Christmas Miracle

    • Published: November 2011

    in Christmas Poems

    Mama told me a story a long, long time ago, not like any that I'd ever heard,
    all about a little girl mama used to know, how I remember every word.
    Seems like a lifetime ago, though I remember it so well.
    It was a Christmas Eve I'll never forget as far as I can tell.
