Wings Of The Angels

A gentle wind blew cross the land
Reaching out to take a hand
For on the winds the angels came
Calling out a mother's name.

Left behind, the children's tears
Loving memories of the years
Of joy and love, a life well spent
And now to God a mother's sent.

On angel's wings, a heavenly flight
The journey home, towards the light
To those who weep, a life is gone
But in God's love, 'tis but the dawn.

My mom is in the midst of cancer now. she will not be with us much longer. she is a beautiful woman and a fabulous mother. it can never be the same here once she is gone. i am spending every minute i can with her. i love her so deeply. i know that she will be in a better place, but i wish she could be well and stay here with us. she has 3 children and 8 grandchildren and 1 great grandson on the way any time. if you are a praying person reading this, pray for our mom that she may be in peace.

This poem is amazing and I'm sure that the friend you gave it to was deeply comforted by your kind words. I'm writing a poem about my Grandad for school and I'm finding it really hard, but if my poem ends up half as good as this one I'll be very pleased. A trully wonderfully and touching poem!
Sandra

Thank you Tim, for the perfect poem to say how I felt the day my mom passed on, she passed over on April 17, 2006. I have been fighting depression ever since. Reading your poem brought tears flooding from my eyes, but gave me hope that there is another side.

Tim, this poem brought instant tears to my eyes. You see my husband and I are raising our two grandchildren, 3 1/2 and 10 1/2 years old. Their mother was taken from them in April, 2003 by their father. Very long, heart breaking story. My 10 year old granddaughter has had a very hard time dealing with the loss her mommy, especially around Mother's Day, and other holidays. Her little brother was only 6 months old at the time of his mommy's death, for a better choice of words, but, recently. has been asking for his "mommy". This broke my heart as, I know, he is coming to the age where he see the difference in mommy and nana (me). I try to explain to both of them that mommy now lives in Heaven, way, way up in the sky with Jesus, but watches over them everyday. I teach them that one day, our Lord will come to get us to take us to Heaven, too and we all will be together. This Mother's Day, we are going to do something special. The kids will make a Mother's Day card and I will get a big Happy Mother's Day balloon filled with helieum. We will attach the card to the balloon and while we are visiting mommy's gravesite, the children will let the balloon go up, up into the sky to mommy. These two children are my life, as well as my husbands. We don't understand "why" this had to happen, and would do anything to turn the clock back, but know that's not possible. However, my husband and I have been given a precious gift by being able to love, guide and cherish the two little people. Your poem says what my Granddaughter has said over and over, Mommy is an Angel and sometimes she can feel she is close to her. Wonderful expression of how even little people feel when they loose their mommy at such a fragile age. Thank you. I will print this out for my granddaughter as I know she will love it!

im 16 and i lost my mum 2 years ago to cancer. the poem reminds me of the brilliant person she was and how she would be a perfect candidate for an angel in heaven. i miss her so much but this poem provides that bit of inner peace we need to keep us going knowing she is in a better place and is no longer suffering. Thankyou, it's touched deep inside. i've actually written it down and i know i will keep it in my bag at all times. xxx

I think this poem is beautiful,sad but tender. I would love to have someone who thinks so compassionately of the feelings of others feel that need to express their sentiments. This poem made me cry,thank you,Tim, it was beautiful
Karen
Your poem hits heart. I lost my mother Dec. 12th 2003 I miss her alot. Though I know her spirits are here. She died at the age of 69 of kidney failure & heart disease. It was very sudden. We did not know that she was going to heaven, but i do know now that she is in less pain and with my dad. Thank you sharing that the angels are taking care of my parents. I miss them both very much. I am 35 yrs old and not having a mother or father is hard, but my family is helping me cope. Thank you for helping me see the way.

I haven't lost my mother yet, however she has lung cancer and bone cancer and is not expected to live only 6 short months. I was looking on the web to find a poem that I could give to her now but instead I found this one. I love this poem and when the time comes that god does take her. I will want to read this at her funeral.

My mother passed away 5 weeks this Friday. I believe an angel came and got her, the angel being my son who died in 1989 aged two and a half years.
