Momma’s Touch
(In Loving Memory Poems)

Mom, I dreamed of you
last night ..
You stretched out your arms
and hugged me tight.

And just for a moment
there it seemed ..
That your touch was real
not just a dream.

I had talked to God
just hours before ..
And told Him “Lord
there is nothing more.

That could satisfy
or comfort me ..
Than for my mother’s
face to see.”

God heard my prayer
and through His grace ..
Mom, I looked
upon your face.

I felt your hug
your love, your touch ..
The very things
I needed so much.

There is a void
in my life still ..
A place that no one
else can fill.

But precious memories
I have of you ..
And I have God
to lean on too.

So Mom, until
that glorious day
We walk hand in hand
in Heaven I’ll pray.

That once again
through God’s loving grace ..
I’ll feel your touch
and see your face.
