How precious are my memories
When you were small and still with me.
I see your face on Christmas Day--
It almost takes my breath away!

For joy and happiness were there
As you saw gifts strewn everywhere
And in remembrance, I can smile
And feel that joy, at least awhile.

Then sadness comes again to claim
My body as I say your name,
And think of all that I have missed
Since last I gave your cheek a kiss.

But then a vision fills my eyes
Which open with such great surprise,
I see you there at Jesus' throne;
I see that you are not alone.

You're part of millions in that throng
That joyfully will sing the song
To celebrate His precious birth
When He came down to us on earth.

And never need I have a fear
Nor ever need to shed a tear,
For you are well, alive, and whole!
I celebrate your precious soul

Which lives forever in heaven above
Because of Jesus' saving love;
And some day I will join you, son,
Eternal life at last begun.


Love always and forever,
Mom
