(based on a true story)
Her son stepped to the pulpit with
some papers in his hand.
He cleared his throat and thought a bit,
but would they understand?
Would they know who mom really was?
Would they know they had fun?
Would they know mom loved God and prayed?
Would they know all she'd done?
Would they know she was always poor,
her pain and all her crying?
Would they know she helped little ones
with smiles and hugs while dying?
He laid, then, all the papers down
and peered up into Heaven.
Inside his mind he edited
his words right down to seven.
Would seven words explain it all
and would those words prevail -
there in each heart describing mom
in intimate detail?
Now friends and fam'ly waited for
her son with eager ears -
as he concluded all his thoughts
while holding back his tears.
He took a breath and slowly spoke
until his talk was done.
"Ev'ryone loved mom, because,
[my] mom loved ev'ryone."
He noticed many sparkles flash,
in each and ev'ry eye.
He gazed down at the casket then -
and said his last goodbye.
God knows all corners of our minds.
He knows our subtle ways.
He knows the number of our hairs,
deceptions of our days.
But love connects both God and man -
the greatest and the last -
and son knew he would see her soon,
for time on earth flies fast.
