The lines of a poem, like lyrics of a song, become endearing because of the one who wrote those words. Going through countless photographs and other personal belongings of my parents recently, we came upon the words of a couple of poems my mother shared with her caregivers. There just seemed to be a longing for Mom to have these words written down and her caregivers became her scribes.
Today I am thankful for those words, maybe they were the lyrics to a song, or perhaps my Mom truly did come up with them but nonetheless, it's great to be able to share what was on her mind.
When evening folds her precious curtains and pins them with a star
Remember darling I'll always love you
No matter where you are.....
With a smile on my face, a song in my heart and a wave of my hand,
I have wandered into an unknown land where Jesus waits for me there
and welcomes me home.
