A Mother’s Crown
(Sympathy Funeral Poems Mother)
Heaven lit up with a mighty presence
as the Angels all looked down –
Today the Lord was placing the jewels
into my Mother’s crown.
He held up a golden crown
as my darling Mother looked on –
He said in His gentle voice
I will now explain each one.
The first gem, He said, is a Ruby
and it’s for endurance alone –
For all the nights you waited up
for your children to come home.
For all the nights by their bedside
you stayed till the fever went down –
For nursing every little wound
I add this ruby to your crown.
An emerald, I’ll place by the ruby
for leading your child in the right way –
For teaching them the lessons,
that made them who they are today.
For always being right there
through all life’s important events –
I give you a sapphire stone
for the time and love you spent.
For untying the strings that held them
when they grew up and left home –
I give you this one for courage.
then the Lord added a garnet stone.
I’ll place a stone of amethyst, He said
for all the times you spent on your knees –
When you asked if I’d take care of your children
and then for having faith in Me.
I have a pearl for every little sacrifice
that you made without them knowing-
For all the times you went without
to keep them happy, healthy and growing.
And last of all I have a diamond
the greatest one of all –
For sharing unconditional love
whether they were big or small.
It was your love that helped them grow
feeling safe and happy and proud –
A love so strong and pure
it could shift the darkest cloud.
After the Lord placed the last jewel in
he said, Your crown is now complete –
You’ve earned your place in Heaven
with your children at your feet.
