God gave to me a blessing
A daughter of my soul,
With the charge to love her so
Until she became completely whole.
So I nurtured the gift of her tenderness
With the wisdom of my God above,
Until she blossomed into a young lady
Glowing brightly with His love.
Time became, when she was grown,
Her gentle loveliness to wear,
Then God said thank you, to my mother heart
For this precious life prepared.
With all the wondrous work completed
There is nothing more for you to do,
In Jesus grace, she's perfect for My heaven
Her heart already soft and true.
For in loving Me with all her heart
She gave her life away,
I have no desire she suffer more of pain
I will call her home, to Me today.
With love, as you weep long in your loss
You will know the comfort of My love,
And as years roll by, you will give thanks
That she is safe with Me above.
Have faith, I know the bigger picture
For all she will be spared,
Grievous would be your sorrow to see her wither
In the heartbreak of another care.
For although she left an emptiness
Your love for her, is more
As now you wait in joyous anticipation
For the reunion you are longing for.
She left behind her precious gift
The sweetness of her tender grace,
Now you can smile beneath your tears
Dreaming of loveliness glowing always on her face.
For your life cannot contain a greater joy
Than bearing an eternal child,
For God to so delight in
That He would catch her up in His arms forever
And with His beauty glorify.
Dear Lord, hold all the mothers close,
with the same love
that gives their children
beautiful wings to fly.
Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems

This is what The Lord says, I will return to Zion..
then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth...
The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.
They will be like a well watered garden,
and they will sorrow no more.
Then maidens will dance and be glad,
young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness.
I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
