It's been a journey, mom
Filled with moments we'd never imagined
Struggles & Hard came fierce
but so did the Happy
Onward you'd go
so worried you were a burden
never wanting to put anyone out
but always determined!
Your strength amazed us all
(even to the very end)
& your spirit, mom
your gentleness
your very heart was kindness
& love
No one met you but immediately smiled
you were just that way
(& never even realized)
As your body became more broken
never once did you falter
or complain
(if you did, we knew it was serious)
One by one the losses came
& you slowly adjusted
so did we
Yet we knew this day was coming
this Final Goodbye
First it was the Pause & Wait
as if this world held its very breath
(our world did)
Then it was the Precious
the hand squeeze
the eyes open
the laugh
treasures worth more than anything!
& now it's the After
the letting go & letting God
He took your hand
& led you up to Heaven
where your new body was waiting
Oh the comfort in that, mom!
to picture you walking with Jesus
no more wheelchair
no pain
no Hard
only JOY!
& Happiness!
& Jesus!
Save a place for us, okay?
& when our time comes
we expect you with arms wide open
(after Jesus, of course)
Until then, we'll live
with hearts filled to overflowing
Knowing it will be okay
we'll make it
slowly but surely
changed in all the best ways
You were amazing, mom
& we are so grateful
We love you
We miss you
Forever & Always
