All the Way - A Poem that Answered the Prayer of a 90-year old
Once again, I depart from my usual hubs to give space to the second poem/prayer of my mother. She said that came to her as an "answer" to her first poem/prayer.
According to her, the words came to her several days after she finished her poem/prayer that I shared last time. Trusting-A-Prayer-at-Ninety-Years-Old
It does look and sound like an answer. Maybe when you are 90 years old, God speaks to you in a special way. You God's love through flowers and tears and every other creature on earth.
All the Way
Come, child, come
Come to Me all the way
Let's sing together
As the night turns to day.
Here are the flowers
Yonder are the tears
Be guided by the light from above
Which shines for those who love.
Hold tight My hand
It will make firm your stand
Keep us close and warm
And forever out of harm.
All roses have thorns
Destroy their pricks as you sojourn
You'll be thanked heartily
For the safety of the way.
Do not think of tomorrow
Today has sufficient sorrow
Srengthen your faith anew
I will always be with you.
Come, child, come
Together we will reach the Father
Come, with Me, Resurrection is forever!
- Maria S. Placer
My mom is always very spiritual. She has a strong faith in the Lord and prayer to her is as natural is breathing.
I hope you also enjoy this second contribution from her.
My Mom Joined our Creator Last Year
My Mom joined our Creator last year, just one month short of her 95th birthday.
I miss putting up her poems as part of my hubs. But I did manage to put all her poems together in a small book which she had a chance to enjoy before she passed away.
Oh, I miss her so.
