The Angel That Mends Broken Hearts

by Lue
(Knightdale, N.C.)

An angel came to see me today
And sat down by my bed,
She said she is the angel that mends broken hearts
And would I please raise my head.

She wiped the tears away
That was flowing down my cheeks,
And with the most calming voice
She began to speak.

She said she knows my losses
And agreed there were many,
But reminded me of my wins
She was right, there had been plenty.

Yes, your child has gone
But he is with the Lord,
He knows only joy and love now
And peace is his reward.

Then she patted me on the shoulder
And said look up to the sky,
Whenever your heart overflows it's bank
And you begin to cry.

Your son is now looking down on you
And he wants you to know,
That the Lord and he are with you
Where ever you may go.

Well I've got to leave you, mother
Remember to keep your faith strong,
The Lord will come for you someday
To take you where you belong.

Lue, Jacob's mom

Thank you for this poem - I too lost my son and try to think of him as being with the Lord. I wait for the time to be with him again. When I get really depressed I try to think of him in the better place. Its so hard.

Counting on it

Dear Erica,
Thank you for your kind words. Everything that flows from us that is good is from God so I will give him the praise even for a poem. Take care of yourself and I am counting on that day.
