Because You Loved Me

Because You Loved Me

I am kind,happy and strong

I try to help others

Teach them not to do wrong

I make others laugh bring them a smile

In hopes that their lives will be happy for awhile

I love my dear Lord

As you taught me to do

For without him in my life

There is not much I could do

You told me stories

And played games with me too

I wish every child had parents like you

You taught me to share whatever I had

Not to be stingy,selfish or bad

When I would get hurt

You would make it all better

You would clean me all up and say it's okay

Now you go outside and continue to play

If I had bad dreams

I would sleep in your bed

You would pray with me and gently rub my head

You would always make sure I had plenty to eat

And buy me shoes not too small for my feet

Because you loved me I am who I am

Compassionate,caring and strong

Loving,nurturing, and happy as the day is long

Now you are with God and I miss you so

But I know he loves you and that is why you had to go

But you are in my heart every moment each day

Because you loved me

You will be there forever stored safely away

When the time comes for me to go

I know you will be waiting for me

And then again I will be with the most wonderful parents

That God could have ever given me.

I wrote this for my grandparents because I love them and miss them. I know they are in heaven because they were so loving and kind. Thank you mom and dad for all of your love.
