I never would have imagined the end would be like this, me comforting you.Holding your hand, telling you not to worry was not an easy thing for me to do.And even in your weakest hour you tried to comfort me too,Caressing my face, and calming my soul as only a mother can soothe. You have always been there through the thick and the thinNo matter what I’ve done, unconditionally your love never wavering.When I told you of the mistakes I made and all the times people saw me fallYou simply nodded and gently replied ‘so have we all’.The key to success is learning from the pastEnsuring a brighter future is now the present task.A pillar of strength even until the endFighting all life’s battles, knowing it triumphantly you would winPushing me to be the best that you know I can beReminding me to keep the faith and allow God to lead me.Knowing it’s through Christ that I can do all thingsAnd as He never makes a mistake I will come through victoriously.I miss you more than these words could ever sayThe pain in my heart is from one unimaginable dayAfter I cried all that I could; my eyes still shed countless more tearsAnd when I try to sleep, I have nightmares of ten-thousand fearsI walk in footsteps on an unsure pathMy load feels so heavy I am not sure I will last. Silly though I may be, I am afraid of life now that you’re goneBecause I’ve always had a mother.And Mommy, what about my sister and baby brother.I wish you could have stayed just a little while longer, there’s so much left to doI wonder if I prayed hard enough and if so, did they get through. Finding relief in knowing I will see you again someday soonRemembering all you taught me as my soul I continue to groomI will walk in footsteps you have walked before meSeeing the path you walked lead you, Mommy, straight into victory. So as you sleep Mommy, in the cradle of the Lord,I am reassured of God’s promises in His Holy Word.I dream of the day when Heaven’s gates open to receive meAnd with your smiling face and loving eyes, reunited once again I will mumWritten by Jeremiah GodwinBeyonce – Heaven (Heaven surely couldn’t wait for you)
