Tribute To Mom


You loved your children much
You were born at a tough time in history
You were born in a rough place
I can only imagine the pain you felt
When they said you were not good enough
Simply because of your complexion
Simply because of where you came from

Though rejected
You never stopped smiling
Never stopped encouraging
Never stopped loving

Hope He cleanse your spirit
Of all impurities
And present you holy
Holy to the Almighty

I remember the good you did
I remember how you cared for me
Even when I was sick
I remember

The last time I saw you
You were in excruciating pain
You were in your last days
May the Lord keep you
Until we meet again
In Jesus name
Amen!
