A Poem for Leslee

Precious Gift
©  Sherri Lawrence

When times seem too hard to bear & I l feel like giving up
I vision your beautiful face, the twinkle of your eyes and things of such
The bond we created from my womb to the day you were born
Is a mother and daughter bind that can never be torn
With the strength and guidance of God and the blessings he pours down from above
I want to be the best mom I can be to you and embrace you with all my love
You are as precious as a flower and as gorgeous as a rose
You have been specially made to the very tip of your nose
You are as sweet as honey; such an innocent young child
You are brighter than any star in the sky every time you smile
I want you to be proud of who you are and strive to be the best
Put forth your efforts to achieve your goals and let God do the rest
I will always be your mother first, but I'm also your friend
Your are the most precious gift, that I've ever been given

With All My Love,  Mom

1957-2008  she was always my angel  and now she belongs to God.

What? No. She can't be gone already. This is just a poem for her right?  She is still here isn't she?  This can't be what I am reading is it?

Words can not say what I want, she is now with all the other Angels, in peace and pain free, looking and careing for those left behind, she will leave you small messages, look for them, this will give you comfort knowing she is still with you all in sprirt. Steve
