A Mother's Prayer

~ a mother's prayer ~
the angels heard you coming tonight
and welcomed you with wings to fly
they held your hand and whispered
things that only those in heaven sing
the roads pave gilded and refined
you are heaven's now, but always mine
I say goodbye and through my tears
remember days, minutes, years.
i've known you well through
these hard days
i know by heart the many ways
i love you
