About the Poem

I wrote this poem a month after my grandmother died of lung cancer. I'm not a great poet, but this came from my heart.

I miss you Muddy, but I know that you're safe in the arms of Jesus.

It Won't Be Long

You said before you died,
that I was the key to your heart.
But the truth is you were mine.
I ask the Lord above,
to answer my prayers.
That you would come back.
But, that wouldn't be fair.
I now know that you're happy where you are.
Safe in the arms of Jesus,
without any cares.
But I want you to know,
that I still love you so.
And I'll go on living for Him,
Knowing that His light will never dim.
Someday together we'll be,
But, until then, the Lord will take care of me.
So, keep on watching,
It won't be long.
That from this world,
I'll be gone.
Into your arms once again,
Safe from all the worldly harm.

I lost my grandmother while giving birth to my third child. She died on the 18th and he was born on the 19th. This was a very hard time for me because I lived 600 miles from her and couldn't get home to kiss her good bye. I just wanted to say I could feel the love and sorrow from your poem. It touched me grately.
