An Angel Remembers

Hey, I know you!
I feel the love
Even though I rest
In heaven above.
And you might wear
A strangerís face,
But love like yours
Time canít erase.
My first few years
Were spent with you.
You loved me then
And you still do.
Though I grew up
From you apart,
I knew the love
Of your dear heart.
You put my needs
Before your own -
No greater love
Could you have shown.
You gave me hugs.
You gave me laughter.
You gave me hope
For happy ever after.
I wish that we
Could have been friends.
A little more time,
We would have been.
Iím sorry that
I had to leave.
I know that you
Will always grieve.
But I am with you
Every day -
In smiles you give,
In words you say
To give relief
To someoneís pain,
In bright spring flowers,
In summer rain,
The blue of a
Clear autumn sky.
For in your heart
I did not die.
And on the coldest
Winterís night
Iíll be with you
And hold you tight.
Iíll be the comfort
You always find
When lifeís trials
Batter your mind.
A rainbow arc
Heaven to earth
Will remind you
Of my birth.
Hey, Iíd know you
From any other!
Your name is "love" -
You are my mother.

I hope you'll not be angry with me for posting this but it made me smile and made me cry, made me want to hug you so very much for knowing and loving me..this poem alone makes me take up the fight for life again....

Bless you MotherHen...you truly are a woman with a mother's heart!

A little chick sheltering under a loved wing..:-))


I promise not to mention sadness again but this got to me bigtime!!!!

Ahh RG- How can one be angry at you for being who you are? We all know you are a bright ray of light in our lives, but even the most perfect life must have a little cloudiness!

It would be rather silly for me to write something hoping to make a tough time easier and then get angry with you for showing me I succeeded! *G* And there's nothing you could say that could have pleased me more than this "makes me take up the fight for life again." If I were more coordinated, I'd do cartwheels at that thought... but since I'm a klutz, I'll settle for yelling YEEEEEE-HAH! *G*

I do know you and love you... and there's always shelter under these wings, dear chick... Much love... from Mother Hen.
