Maw Maw's Poems

Sweet Angel Above

I was given an Angel 
to cherish and love
So tiny, so perfect,
 a gift from above


When I looked at his face
 it was calmness I found
And that peace seemed to spread 
to all he was around


His love touched my heart
 like fine threads of spun gold
And I thanked God for giving 
me this Angel to hold


But I did not know then
 that time was my foe
And too soon with a whisper
 my angel would go


My heart almost breaking 
a touch soft as lace
Seemed to wipe at the hurt 
as it coursed down my face
I still have my Angel 
to cherish and love


Those gold threads now 
shimmer from heaven above
And though I can't see him
 or cuddle him tight


I won't say goodbye,
 little Angel, Goodnight

Sweet Little Flower

The world may never notice
If a Snowdrop doesn't bloom,
Or even pause to wonder
If the petals fall too soon.

But every life that ever forms,
Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.

The little one we longed for
Was swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.


And though our arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do.
Every beating of our hearts
Says that we love you.

WHAT IS A TRUE FRIEND?
image

"A friend is someone who smiles when you smile, laughs when you laugh, but holds you close when you cry"

MY HEARTS PRAYER

"I want my life to be a testimony of God's Grace, and pray my saviors love will be reflected in my face.

I pray I'll always see forgiveness for each careless deed, and that I'll never turn my back when someone has a need.

I pray I'll be a blessing 'till I reach life's setting sun, So when my life is over>God will say."Well done"

LOVING YOU, LEXI AND UR SWEET MAW MAW
image

~SMILE BECAUSE SHE LIVED~

I CAN SHED TEARS THAT LEXI IS GONE,
OR I CAN SMILE BECAUSE SHE LIVED,
I CAN CLOSE MY EYES AND PRAY THAT SHE'LL COME BACK,
OR I CAN OPEN MY EYES AND SEE ALL THAT SHE HAS LEFT.

MY HEART CAN BE EMPTY BECAUSE I CAN'T SEE HER,
OR I CAN BE FULL OF THE LOVE THAT WE SHARED.
I CAN TURN MY BACK ON TOMORROW AND LIVE  IN YESTERDAY,
OR I CAN BE BLESSED FOR TOMORROW BECAUSE OF YESTERDAY.

I CAN REMEMBER LEXI AND ONLY THAT SHE IS GONE,
OR I CAN CHERISH HER MEMORY AND LET IT LIVE ON.
I CAN CRY AND CLOSE MY HEART, BE EMPTY AND TURN BACK,
OR I CAN DO WHAT LEXI WOULD WANT:
SMILE~OPEN MY EYES~CONTINUE TO LOVE AND GO ON~
SMILE BECAUSE YOU LIVED, LEXI~~~
...............ALWAYS LOVING YOU SWEETHEART!!!

I love you miss Bonnie!!!

The Busiest Day In Heaven"
image

It's the busiest day in Heaven
I'm planning a big surprise
To let you know I love you
And that no one ever dies

Even though your down below
And I am up above
I'm sending you my wishes
And all my angel love

It's really quite exciting
To plan this big event
For lots of gifts will come your way
And all are Heaven sent

First I'll take a bubble bath-
My splashes might cause some rain
But knowing all the fun I'm having
Will help to ease your pain

Next I'll get some pictures
In my halo and gown
So when you get to Heaven
You can show me all around

I have color crayons in Heaven
And I will draw some stars so bright
And place them in the sky today
For you to see tonight

Then Jesus will have story time
And I will sit upon his lap
He'll tell me all about you
Just before I nap

I'll awake full of energy
And play a game or two
Before I finish sending
All my love to you

After snack I'll write a song
For all the birds to sing
And know I've made you happy
With all the joy it brings

At night time I'll be tired
But I'll still hold you tight
My arms will wrap around you
And keep you through the night

And when you finally slumber
I will kneel and pray
Asking God to bless you
On this special Mothers Day

Love,
Your Little Angel

A Parent's Heartache

A Parents Heartache

"A grieving parent is someone who will never forget there child no matter how painful memories are.
A grieving parent is someone who yearns to be with there child but cannot conceive leaving their living ones.
A grieving parent is someone who has part of a heart as the rest has gone with their child.
A grieving parent is someone who begs for relief from the memories which plague them and then feels guilty when they get it.
A grieving parent is someone who pretends to be happy and enjoying life when they are really dying inside.
A grieving parent is someone who can cry or laugh at the drop of a hat whenever they remember their beloved child.
A grieving parent is someone who feels as if they have just lost their child yesterday no matter how much time has passed.
A grieving parent is someone who fears for their remaining family because they cannot bear to have any more losses.
A grieving parent is someone who sits by their child's memorial and feels a knife stabbing their heart.
A grieving parent is someone who wants to help others who have lost a loved one because somehow others loss is theirs all over again"

I Have a Place in Heaven

I Have a Place in Heaven
Please don't sing sad songs for me,
Forget your grief and fears,
For I am in a perfect place
Away from pain and tears.

It's far away from hunger
And hurt and want and pride,
I have a place in Heaven
With the Master at my side.

My life on earth was very good,
As earthly life can go,
But Paradise is so much more
Than anyone can know.

My heart is filled with happiness
And sweet rejoicing, too.
To walk with God is perfect peace,
A joy forever new.

Great & noble tasks get done with one step at a time.

Taking each and every turn,mountains can be climbed.

Don't miss the opportunities of magic as you go.

Just move as it processes self and let the journey flow.

You'll discover,looking back,you needed but to ask,

 Of Him His helping hand to guide o'er great and noble tasks.

(Ruthmarie Brooks Silver).

If I Could Catch a Rainbow
image

"If I could catch a rainbow,
I would do it just for you,
And share with you its beauty,
The days you're feeling blue.
If I could build a mountain,
You could call your very own.
A place to find serenity,
A place to be alone.
If I could take your troubles,
I would toss them in the sea.
But all these things I'm finding,
Are impossible for me.
I cannot build a mountain,
Or catch a rainbow fair,
But let me be what I know best,
A friend that's always there!

For some things there are no shortcuts,no easy remedies when life throws you a curve ball and brings you to your knees.Sometimes it seems you can't win however hard you try when your faith is sorely tested and all you do is cry.It does no good to gripe,complain,when you're not up to par because true friends will understand and love us as we are.We sometimes need a helping hand before we see the light,and just knowing prayers are answered will help us through the night.We're not alone in time like these unless we choose to be,for God won't leave us comfortless in times of tragedy.There are angels all around us to catch us when we fall,and through His tender mercies we can rise above it all.Clay Harrison(Author)
