A Prayer For Mama

My dear sweet heavenly father, I come to you today

with faith and hope; I ask, send an angel Mama’s way.

I know her time is near and soon you’ll take her home

to stroll across the streets of gold where other angels roam.

It’s hard to watch her suffer and slowly fade away.

Help me, God, to understand; give me strength, I pray.

She means so much to all of us; forgive me for my fears.

Life will never be the same without her presence here.

My mother is my angel; she taught me how to love

and told me about you, Lord, and heaven up above.

When she crosses over and steps into the light,

tell her that I love her and when the time is right,

meet me at the pearly gates where everything’s brand new.

We’ll walk across God’s meadow lands where skies are always blue.

Somewhere beyond the sunset every now and then,

I pray she watches over me until we meet again.
