“You Live In My Heart”
Poem for my Mother
Rosalind “Bee” Harris
It’s my first Mother’s Day, that you are away.
Asking how I am doing, I will miss hearing you say.
My days are often lonely, with thoughts of you.
Bringing much sadness, and feelings that are blue
Although you are gone, and we are apart,
You are still here, because you live in my heart.
For some unexpected reason, you were taken from us
At a time when we still, needed you so much,
But God had a plan that we’ll never understand
He took you in his arms, and held your hand
I ask myself and others, where is my beauty of art.
Don’t worry Bee they say, she’s there in your heart.
You left behind to cherish, a legacy of love,
One that was created, by the only one above
Family and friends, will forever miss your touch
But especially the smile, that we all love so much.
Fond memories of you, are not difficult to start
Because Big Ma, you are part of my heart.
I know one day, I will see you again
Erasing the sorrow, and much of the pain,
I miss you so much, and the times we shared
Laughing, joking and smiling, while just combing our hair
You are not gone, we’re just temporally apart
Because dear mother, you’ll always be in my heart
“I Live In Your Heart”
Message to my Daughter
Don’t worry BeBe, I know you are torn,
I want you to know, that I have been reborn,
I am wrapped in the arms, of our God here above,
Protected and cared, by his un-denying love
No longer should you tarry, that we are apart
I will always be with you, because I live in your heart
