A Letter From Heaven - Poem by Whitney Albright

Mommy, I'm sending you a message
By someone who can understand
I asked God to lay it on her heart
To bring it to your hands
For me you've cried a thousand tears
And colored your life deep blue
But I always paint you rainbows
To bring a smile for you
Mommy, I heard your prayers for me
And I have felt you mourn
I knew that you loved me
Before I was even born
And I watch you pass by room
With tears in your beautiful eyes
Dreaming of what could have been
Of laughs and rock-a-byes
I'm sorry my life was short
And I couldn't stay longer
But you're the reason I hung around
You're the arms that made me stronger
And I loved it there,
In your sweet embrace
I loved to see your hope for me
Written on your face
We are forever a family
I will see you soon
I'll always be with you
And love you to the moon
Don't think I've been robbed of life
Or met a fate undue
For I'm only here with God
Just a waiting for you
So, smile and know that I'm ok
And in the care of another
Know that I did have a choice
And I picked you as my mother
Thank you for all the kisses
For rocking me safe to sleep
And for all the love and promises
That those rare mothers keep
I know it's hard to understand
That tables turn out of the blue
Because now I watch you sleep
Now I take care of you
I know you'll always hear my footsteps
Echoing through the halls
Always see the family pictures
That should hang on your walls
But, mommy you must know
I listen for your footsteps, too
And I have a billion hugs and stories
To one day share with you

    Truly felt the sadness of the poem which itself is about the unduly death of the child and its thoughts from other world reciting it to its mother who lives in this world. Truly interesting. (Report) Reply
