Prayer for loss of my mother
(a prayer for a family grieving the death of their mom)
She was a pillar, a gift of love, a treasure to my soul.
Always caring, ever kind and giving, even as she grew old.
To me she was a lovely mum, to you a beloved child.
I could only know her a little, you knew her spirit deep inside.
Whilst waves of grief break over me, crushing like a storm,
You've greeted her with a warm embrace, and gently called her home.
It's silent and so empty here, since she passed away,
And yet she will hear celebration, called forever into grace.
My memories are treasures now, I'll value, keep and sow,
I know she's taken all her riches, left the chaff and worn the gold!
As time passes, I'll forget the hurt and pain she bore,
For now, she's free, restored and peaceful, in your arms forevermore.
I'll let each bulb, each bud, each bloom, sing to me of your love.
For you reign in eternity, and I'll wait for your kingdom to come.
Thank you for my special mum, I trust her to your care,
We rest in your arms secure and safe, we are both children there.
