Card To My Mother
Author: Lamar Cole


It was on a September morning.
My mother passed away.
God called her home.
He called her home to stay.

With every sunrise, I see her face.
In my heart, no one can take her place.

Christmas is coming.
It is so very near.
Bringing thoughts of my mother.
Whom I miss so dear.

So I'm sending a card to Heaven.
It floats upon my prayer.
One day in Heaven dear Mother.
We will all have Christmas there.

very moving

This brought tears to my eyes. My mother died 6 years ago just before Xmas. You are right - no one can take her place and I still miss her so much.

deep and very touching

this is very moving for me as I lost my mother when I was 7, to this day I still remember her and what she means to me
