A Friend's Mother
My deepest sympathy friend
In the losing of your mother
Of all the human beings on earth
There is closeness like none other

The one who bore you as a child
And watched you become a man
Has a special place in your heart
That only God can comprehend

The wonderment of human life
Being birthed forth from the womb
So closely knit that bond of love
Only severed by tomb

But great that joy that wells up within
When we entertain the thought
Our meeting again on the other side
Look what our God has wrought!

He who gives the breath to live
Is present at its last
And carries spirits to their home
To await the trumpet's blast

Mothers again with their sons
And daughters at their side
Shall reminisce in eternity
With the Messiah and His Bride

Hallelujah! What a Savior!
