PEACE, LIKE A RIVER FLOWS
MOTHERS NEVER DIE......
...THEY JUST KEEP HOUSE IN THE SKY!
When we are children,
we are happy and gay
And our Mother is young
and she laughs as we play.
Then, as we grow up,
she teaches us truth
And lays life's foundation
in the days of our youth.
And then it is time
for us to leave home
But her teachings go
with us where ever we roam.
For all that she taught us
and all that we did
When we were often
just a "bad little kid"
We will often remember
That Mothers are special
and wonderfully wise...
And as she grows older,
we look back with love
Knowing that Mothers
are "Gifts from Above"
And when she "goes home"
to receive her reward,
She will dwell in God's Kingdom
and "keep house for the Lord"
Where she'll "light up" the stars
that shine through the night
And keep all the moonbeams
"sparkling and bright"
And then with the dawn
she'll put the darkness away
As she "scours" the sun
to new brilliance each day...
So dry tears of sorrow,
for Mothers don't die...
They just move in with God
and "keep house" in the sky!!
THIS TOO WILL PASS
This, too, will pass.O heart, say it over and over,
Out of your deepest sorrow, out of your deepest grief,
No hurt can last forever...perhaps tomorrow
Will bring relief.
This, too, will pass.
It will spend itself...its fury
Will die as the wind dies down with the setting sun;
Assuaged and calm, you will rest again,
A thing that is done.
Repeat it again and again, O heart, for your comfort;
This, too, will pass as surely as passed before
The old forgotten pain, and the other sorrows
That once you bore.
As certain as stars at night, or dawn after darkness,
Inherent as the lift of the blowing grass,
Whatever your despair or your frustration..
This, too, will pass.
