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.
Harvest of The Heart
Mom, I need to talk to you
Some things I need to say ..
I thank the good Lord up above
For you most everyday.
I think of times when as a child
I took your love for granted ..
But at this painful time in life
I feel the seeds you planted.
The seeds of strength, you placed in me
Are grown and now in bloom ..
Although alone, I face today
Your strength is in this room.
The seeds of faith, you gave to me
Have flourished, and have stayed ..
As you instructed long ago
When feeling weak, I’ve prayed.
The seeds of love you planted deep
And nourished them with care ..
You watered them with many tears
And blessed them with your prayers.
So Mom, I want to thank you now
YOU are Gods greatest art ..
for giving me these fruits of love
“Moms Harvest of The Heart”.

You are the Mother I received
the day I wed your son ..
And I just want to thank you, Mom
for the things that you have done.
You have given me a gracious man
with whom I share my life ..
You are his lovely Mother
and I his lucky wife.
You used to pat his little head
and now I hold his hand ..
You raised in love a little boy
then gave to me a man.
