    Mama, I remember many years ago
    as a woman you gave me wisdom of
    The Father and Son as you said
    " His will shall be done"

    Brought me up in the church pretty
    dresses with matching purses
    gave me wisdom of Him as He became
    my Friend

    On your deathbed I heard you pray
    Lord, Lead her safely through life as
    hardships will come
    Lord, keep her strong through the rain
    and storms to Live On

    I watched you take your last breath as a
    smile spread on your face
    I knew you went home full of grace
    tears fell from my eyes as I lost the love
    of my life as I said
    " Mama, I won't forget to pray to our Lord to
    show me the way as I walk the miles each day
    Mama, I won't forget to pray showing the love
    You and Jesus placed into my Heart, into my Mind,
    into my Soul as I go my way

    Mama, I won't forget to pray to my Saviour each day
    allowing him to take hold of my Life and Soul
    Mama, don't worry about me because Jesus is the Anchor
    of all the seas
    calm waters, Turbulent storms, tornadoes that blow the way
    of the weary and worn
    My Faith will stand as Jesus place each seal of Wisdom and Love
    within to brighten someone's day who need Hope to live with him
    as they forever stay
    So don't worry Mama, your baby girl is a woman with Faith in God
    with years of wisdom to tough it out as the sun shine once again
    with stars shining and twinkling her way
    Mama, I won't forget to pray
    because my steps by Jesus is Led
    I Love You, Mama
    I Won't Forget To Pray

    Beautiful :heart: :heart: :heart:

    This poem brought tears to my eyes. I remember those pretty ruffle dresses with the patent leather purses. I remember also having a strong mother who believed in prayer.

    Nice piece
