For Jordanski:

Heaven

Needed Mom

So many things of Mom I miss --

Her gentle hug and tender kiss.

I still can feel her warm embrace.

And picture yet her loving face

A mothersí tasks are never done.

And Heaven must have needed one.

For angels came and took her hand

And led her to Godís promised land.

She's surely kept quite busy there

While brushing little angelsí hair.

And making sure theyíre dressed just right,

Not staying out too late at night.

Although thereís sadness, this I know --

Sheís waiting there, her face aglow

I close my eyes and I can see --

Her arms still open wide for me.

Heaven Needed My Dad

I still recall a loving dad

And cherish every day we had

I picture yet his caring face

His comforting and warm embrace.

A fatherís jobs are never done.

And Heaven must have needed one.

For angels came and took his hand

And led him to Godís promised land.

A daddyís like a teddy bear.

He teaches children how to share.

He reads them stories, swings small tykes,

And plays with dolls and fixes bikes.

Although thereís sadness, this I know --

Heís waiting there, his face aglow

I close my eyes and I can see --

His arms still open wide for me.

Iíll Keep You In My Heart

If I could have one wish come true,

Iíd ask of God in prayer

To let me have just one more day

To show how much I care.

If love could reach to Heavenís shore,

Iíd quickly come for you.

My heart would build a bridge of love,

One wide enough for two.

If tears could bring you back to me,

Youíd be here by my side.

For God could fill a river full

With all the tears Iíve cried.

But this I know, the day will come

When we will never part.

Until that day we meet again,

Iíll keep you in my heart.

I hope that these words may help when we are feeling low or on 'down' days....

Love Jane

††††††††††††††††††††† Mother

You always used to watch us,
Anxious if we were late;
In winter by the window,
In summer by the gate;
And though we mocked you tenderly,
Who took such loving care;
The long road home would seem more safe,
Because she waited there;
Her thoughts were all for us,
She never could forget;
And so I think that where she is,
She must be waiting yet;
Waiting till we come to her,
Anxious if we are late;
Watching from Heaven's window,
Leaning on Heaven's gate.
