For My Daughter "M"

I have a self adopted daughter who I will call "M", she has just lost her precious mother to cancer.

"M" Honey, this poem is for you and everyone who has known and loved your mom, and I hope this poem gives you some peace and comfort in trying to cope with, and handle this devastating time.


Don't grieve for me,
for now I'm free.
I'm following the path
God laid for me.

I took his hand when I heard him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes, these things, I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life's been full, I savored much;
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seems all to brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.

Linda Jo Jackson

"M" I pray that the poem gives you some comfort. I love you and we are here for you when ever you need us. I will see you very soon but I am here until I do.

And remember... "The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy"
                                               Psalm 145:8
