It Was Your Love - Poem by Jonathan Bellmann

You watched me as a child
Grow stronger every day;
It was your love that fed me
And sped me on my way.
Each night I slept securely
Beneath a blanket warm and snug,
Though, often you sat beside me
And taught me of God’s love.

As I grew older you never from me left,
Your strengths became mine;
Your kindness, your stubbornness,
Your peace of mind.
You helped me when I faltered;
Without question you bore my griefs;
You gave to me true happiness
When there was no peace.

I hope you heard me mother;
Here, I sit beside you now
Upon this bed you lay unable
To see me smile or frown.
I have to leave, yet this I pray,
That Jesus would come
For you today.

You watched me as a child
Grow stronger every day;
It was your love that fed me
And sped me on my way.
