September Burial

September Burial

My Mother was buried today
The sun was shining in the sky
With us, she could not stay
So very ill, a reprieve to die

But as final prayers were being said
The sun brightened with an angelic glow
Time to join the man she wed
Nineteen years she waited to go

All those years she gave us care and love
She knew Daddy, she would one day see
Although she yearned for Heaven above
She remained with her children three

Then the illness with which she was stricken
Weakened her, made her so very ill
Her failing lungs, the tissue thickened
No longer responding to any pill

So much suffering, time for peace
That our Lord provided her with release
Thank you, God, for your mercy
For oxygen she was so thirsty

Take a deep breath, Mom, it is your due
Use the lungs God has given you anew
Now you and Dad can watch us all
We'll do our best, try not to fall

Your pain now over, we are so glad
All our love to both you and Dad
God will reunite us when he sees fit
Fear not, for the Lord our path has lit

Mommy and Daddy, please rest in peace, you're finally together. Love, Lisa
