poem for mom

May I Go Now?
Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days
and endless lonley nights?
I've lived my life and done my
best. an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond
And set my spirit free?
I didn't whant to go at first.
I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw
me now to a warm and loving light.
I whant to go.... I really do
It's difficult to stay.
But I will try best I can
to live just one more day
To give you time to care for me
And share your love and fears.
I know your sad and afraid,
because i can see your tears
I'll not be far, I promise that,
And hope youll always know
that my spirit will be close to
to you wherever you may go.
Thank you so much for loving me
you know I love you too
that's why it's hard to say good-
bye and end this life with you.
So hold me now just one more
time and let me hear you say,
Because you care so much for
you'll let me go today.
Perhaps you aren't ready yet to
have to say goodbye...
Perhaps you've thought of
Things you wish you'd said
Well so have I
For one thing, I'd have told you
Not to worry about me....,
I'm witht the Lord in heaven
Now, you knew that's where
I'd be
I'm sorry that your feeling sad
For I'm so happy now
I've asked the Lord to ease the hurt
and comfort you somehow
Its hard at the beginning
But I know you'll make it through
I hope it helps to know that I'll
be waiting here for you.
