Mum's Glory Poems

December 2016

So happy for my Mum because she had two health challenges. She loved us so much

but desired to be Home with Jesus in Paradise during her last two years

and this was granted her.

My Mum, age ninety one was born underweight and carried on a pillow, the first weeks of her life. She used to be size 10 in clothing and went down to size 8 as time went on, to size 6

in her 80's. I am 5 feet tall and she was just pass my shoulders.

Mum would consider herself a plain Jane, everyday person. We saw more in her than

her view of herself and others did too. I've written these Poems for her that will be

placed on a separate website soon. There has been so much interest in the Loved Ones In Heaven pages here, I thought I would include some Poems on this website also!

Our Mum And Gran

Mum/Gran always had a song

she always had a smile

She always had the courage

to walk an extra mile.

She always had a listening ear

and after brought a word of cheer.

When she had cares

she turned them to prayer.

Mum/Gran also had strength

that did astound

Often in weakness it would abound.

She played with the children

and made them laugh

She had hope in her spirit

till she breathed her last.

Her smiley eyes and feet that danced

will be with us always

throughout our days.

A Special Person

Mum always set an example of love

her heart was gentle like a dove.

Everywhere she went in her earthly tent

she had a word for someone

and their hearts she won.

Yes and everyone liked her

a smile was always found with her.

She loved the little things

fancy things her heart would fling.

She was interested in people

more than church steeples.

Jesus went with her wherever she went

she was a gift to this earth Heaven sent.

She shows us you don't have to be

someone special

to be considered as someone

who is truly special.

A Simple Christian Life

Mum liked to have a simple life

one without misgivings, discord or strife.

She always loved the little things

her heart you would surely win.

She loved to give and not to take

let us be like her for Jesus' sake.

Her heart was always for Him

and to have the victory over sin.

She wanted to cross that shore

where there is pain no more.

And now she is free

yes gloriously free.

This was her desire the last two years

and it was granted her

now her heart is filled with cheer.

Our Dear Mum

A Courageous woman, a woman of worth

you were one of God's best treasures

brought to this Earth.

A heart always to bless now your body's at rest.

Now your spirit is in Heaven where there is no leaven.

Just the pure Bread of Heaven, Jesus Himself

the desire of your heart no longer kept on a shelf

For that which was seemingly denied many a time

a desire to be with Him where all things are fine

there is such celebration that follows Earth's resignation

Delicious treats better than sweets as her body sleeps.

She is younger than us now in her land up there

smiles and laughter that cannot compare.

Not an etch of care can be found on her beautiful face.

They were absent as she skipped away from us

and reflected His Grace.

Her steps were always dainty, she loved to dance

she was always swift to those who needed her

almost from birth -

A caring word, a listening ear

she always had hope and a word of good cheer.

We will never forget you Mum of ours

you have run your race now and we are proud

proud of your fortitude and courage to live

surely this life is not lost through a sieve.

For she leaves so many blessings with us

the one who did not want us to fuss.

But we lavished our love on her

it was much deserved

so many priceless things from you

we have learned.

Mum, you were an unassuming everyday woman

the best I know.

"Don't you fret now, my loved-ones

and those I held dear

for I'm now with Jesus

be of good cheer"

Mum and Jesus

I want to tell you about this Mum of mine

to say everything about her, words could not define

for I'm full of affection with her reflection.

She is in Heaven now one week

it's just like playing hide and seek

I cannot see her but I know she's there

no longer on her rocking chair.

Many times her desire seem to be denied

to be with Jesus by His side.

She wasn't interested in golden streets

but paradise and a nice fresh peach

appealed to her now she has mirth

these promises are given in His Word.

She wasn't one for riches and elegance

she loved to wash dishes and her feet love to dance.

If you came into this kitchen of hers

needing an ear and a comforting word.

She would tell you of Jesus in a simple way

no fancy words, she would tell you to pray.

Jesus was with her along life's way

"give it all to Jesus" she would say.

She would never consider it wasted time

to hear someone's story and make them feel fine.

She was human like us but had innocence rare

she would not judge you or lecture you

just lead you to prayer.

She was known as a lovely lady

people loved her like bees loved daisies.

If ever you're feeling out of sorts

things on your mind, you cannot talk -

think of this gentle mother of mine

Jesus invites you with Him to dine.

In your heart, make a start

ask Him in and get to know Him.

Read His Words, the best I've heard.

Keep looking to Jesus like my Mum

and you will be with Him

when your journey is run.

To Be Truly Spiritual

What is spiritual?

Is it endless fasts or things that last?

Our Mum knew how to help and forget herself

she knew how to love and unwavering trust.

She always smiled, and went the extra mile.

She seldom frowned, and loved children's clowns.

What is being spiritual?

Is it in your talk or walk His walk?

Is it you must follow the leader


some thing you could find in a children's reader?

Jesus said let the children come to Me?

Small ones, big ones - I want you ALL to come.

Be child-like and come to His lap

in later years, you will be trees with sap.

It's time to start and never part

He will give you Life and make you laugh

is your walk unfettered or based on Laws?

Delight in Him and you'll want more

of His Presence near, He will bring you cheer.

You should have heard our Mum pray

sweet and simple things she would say.

Her eyes were on Him day and night

she is so precious in His sight.

If we would be like little lambs

innocent, trusting in His Hands -

just like Mum did and our Race to run

we'd wake up with the Morning Sun.

And go to Heaven where there is no leaven

and join her in the Joyful Song

"He loved me, He loved me, my whole life long"

Then she would take you on a Heavenly tour

Precious Promises for those who endure.

Our Mum Ninety One

An unassuming everyday person without pretense

she worked in the garden when she had cares and concerns.

She was quick to help others, there's much we could learn.

A heroic woman in her own quiet way

she weathered the storms for her children, night or day.

She turned worries to prayers the last few years

to see her worship Jesus would bring you tears -

a frail little woman would go to her knees

such a beautiful sight you ever did see.

Rest in Peace now Mum, your Race is run

and now a New Day has just begun.

Mum's Glory Poem

'Twas in the morning of Christmas Eve

the very best Gift she ever received.

Her face looked so peaceful and soft

her heart so sweet.

The presence of angels filled the air -

she left a trail of blessings as she was passing

just like stardust as she went through the milky way.

Precious memories of her linger as her spirit feels near

she is so precious and oh so dear.

She laid restfully on her pillow

her wrinkles had gone

the CD Player we gave her was playing her songs.

Oh how I love her, this mother of mine

she's in that Fair Land now and everything's fine.

Not a cloud of cares now, just sweet refrain

and one day soon we will see her again.

There were clear blue skies when our Mum went

so many blessings from Heaven sent.

Such a dear sweet soul, she is now whole

she shed the things of Earth

now she is filled with mirth.

Yes Paradise was such a surprise

and Pools of Love in Jesus' Eyes.

He embraced her with warmth a New Day is Born.

Oh how we cherish her, this mother of ours

precious memories linger

we could reflect for hours!

The Victory's Yours Mum

Now you have not a day on this Earth

your countenance is covered with mirth.

When you slipped away and ever since

you have Peace in your heart

oh for one more glimpse!

You're treasured here with memories so dear

our reflection of you is very clear.

You had so much patience with us each one

your days up there are bright as the sun.

Walking with Jesus beside Living Streams

it's finally true Mum, it isn't a dream.

All your desires in one day

a Vision of Jesus, your heart did not sway.

We will soon see you - United Above

and then we all shall be

wrapped in His Love.
