My Mother's Last Words

GOODNIGHT AND GOD BLESS YOU
Thinking back to the first years of my life,
I recall a face that cannot be replaced
With eyes so blue as the deep blue seas,
And as bright as the stars in the heavenly space.

My mother was beautiful from her head to her toes,
With an aroma of perfume like a sweet wild rose,
Her skin was so smooth, like the best woven silk,
And as pink as carnations, mixed with pure white milk.

I remember her smile, oh so clear.
When I rest and think, I feel her so near,
I still feel her kisses,
I still feel her touch,
And the hugs and embraces that I miss so much.

I remember her voice so gentle and kind,
As she sang a lullaby and eased my mind.
I loved her words so firm and strong
That directed and taught me right from wrong.

But most of all, I remember the way
We knelt together at night to pray.
She’d ask God to bless me and then gave me a kiss,
Then said goodnight with the voice that we all miss.

Although she is gone I am sure she still guards me
The way that she did in those days bright and happy.

My mother was more than a Mother to me,
She was also a friend, the best there could be!

Love Kenisha and Micah
