I wrote this poem to read at my Mom's funeral service, she died in 2007 of cancer/kidney failure.

 We prayed for you to be healed

If it was God's will

But there was a place in Heaven

He wanted you to fill


Over the years you fought sickness

At times you won

For you were touched

By God's Holy Son


Then the sickness returned

And filled your body with pain

For just a little longer with us

You would remain


God looked down

And saw you now tired and weak

The sickness that was with you

Left you unable to speak


God saw that

Your suffering continued to grow

He knew your heart

And knew you were ready to go


So God called your name

And as the angels took you to the other side

You were greeted by Jesus

Waiting there with arms open wide


Jesus carried you gently

To your beautiful new home

You are viewing your treasures

Which here have never been known


We will all miss you

In our hearts you will remain

But we would not bring you back

To this world filled with pain


We loved you then

We love you still

But there was a place in Heaven

God wanted you to fill
