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.
