How precious to The Lord
is the passing of His children
It is not a punishment for lack of Faith
it is from this world a welcomed break.
It is the bell-boy that takes us to the Top Floor
to all those things we have longed for more.
Be comforted in His Presence dear
Mum's love and the angels are very near
soon you will see her and be clothed with mirth
and shed all the dross from this Earth
wakened in Glorious Splendor
to Glorious Peace and laughter.
Yes, you will bathe in the River of Life with Mum
endless days that shine like the Son.
There is no fear in that Land of Delight
no sadness, no pain, they're out of sight.
It's only the parting of loved-ones here
but you get to see others, you've not seen for years.
Soon those who love Jesus will be gathered up there
to the greatest Reunion beyond those stairs.
Blissful is the Hope that we share
brighter than diamonds very rare.
Birds and butterflies fill the air
lush green grass so soft to touch.
Flowers so colorful and hearts the are full
Do not fret precious Loved-one of ours
take Joy in Jesus - all things become New
wrapped in His Love so very True.
My Sister – God’s Gift
Sharon was a Gift from God
she walked where the patriarchs trod
With Jesus Grace upon her face
she brought cheer to those who were near
When her faith was tested
she always rested
In the Presence of God
on this earthly sod.
She kept her heart sweet as a lark.
She loved to sing and worship Him.
She gave assistance, there was no resistance
to the needs of others, her sisters and brothers.
She relinquished her will for His
surely she will not miss
Her Reward in Heaven where there is no leaven
no sorrow, no pain but all to gain
Reunited with Mum
her journey is run.
A Heart Of Compassion
My sister was truly one of a kind
she thought not much of her own needs
But yours and mine
she was always attending
Where she felt God was sending.
her ears were attentive
With pure incentive
if she could relieve someone’s distress
They could be at peace and also rest.
she knew the words that would cheer you up
She made our hearts to feast and sup.
she gave her best so others could rest.
She desired to bring Jesus Love
with the gentleness of a dove.
Our hearts were touched
for she loved much.
Her life and presence can still be traced
in the loving expressions
on each one’s face.
Sharon’s Heart And Life
Sharon treasured her memories
may we treasure her.
Since she was young, she had little treasures
gifts that she would give away
memoirs of different places she stayed.
She was always into life
making memories and touching lives
She had many friends, far and near
for she was one who brought good cheer.
Her presence was contagious and often sought
such blessings cannot be sold or bought
She loved the beach and she loved to teach
the children loved her, they were filled with mirth.
She gave them laughter and made things fun
her countenance was cheerful like the sun.
Mum brought her up like Poly-Anna
always finding something to be happy about.
They were inseparable to the end
they loved each-other and were the best of friends
Nothing in life could separate
‘till Mum reached those Pearly Gates
Now they’re together, blessings beyond measure
we will remember them ‘till our journey is run
And we go to meet them like the warmth of the sun
It shall be pleasant indeed
in the Land of the Free!
