My dear, sweet momma passed away May 29, 2008 and this tells of my last days spent with her.

Momma Is Walking With Jesus
Her body was old, worn and tired
That wheelchair she road in no more.
The bed was her earth's last resting place
We moved it by her big window.
The birds she could watch eat their seed.
The hummers would drink their sweet nectar.
Her flowers bloomed with full color
Giving her their show of a lifetime.
Momma I don't want you to leave me,
But I do know it's time for you to go.
Tell Daddy hi and that I love him
And now I'm going to sing you a song.
I know I can't sing well at all momma
But maybe you can stand it a while
I just need to do this for myself momma
Maybe I will not hurt your ears too bad.
I sang one of the songs she loved best
The only verse I could remember then
I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still one the roses
Momma you know "In The Garden"
The song you love so much
I'm sure I did a very bad job of it momma
But I wanted to do it for you.
I know I'm crying momma, I'm sorry
I'm not crying for you
I'm just crying for my old self momma
'cause when your gone I'll miss you so.
Something wonderful for my soul
Happened just then,
My dear, sweet momma turned her head
Eyes still closed, no sound made.
In my heart I know she heard my words
I know she heard my singing
Sweet music to her ears
I know she heard me say, I love you momma.
Go home momma, be with Jesus I said
And momma did
My momma went to Heaven,
To see Jesus face to face.
My momma is walking with Jesus
Up through the Pearly Gates.
