Thinking of you Mom..

A poem I came across today.. I don't know who the author is.. But it seems perfect for me right now..I believe this is the poem we used for my mother's last card.

God looked around His garden
and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon
His earth and saw your loving face.

He puts His arms around you
and lifted you to rest.
His garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.

He knew you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain
and knew that you would never
get well on earth again.

He saw your path was difficult,
He closed your tired eyes.
He whispered to you,
"Peace be thine, "
and gave you wings to fly.
When we saw you sleeping
so calm and free of pain...
we would not wish you back to earth
to suffer once again.

You've left us precious memories
your love will be our guide.
You live on through your children
you're always by our side.

It broke our hearts to lose you
but you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you
on the day God called you home.

Rest In Peace Mom AKA Nani
From All of Us
