Dear Mother in heaven I'm
here missing you,
I think of you often as I fight to stay true.
I imagine our joyful reunion and find,
resolve is strengthened with you in my mind.
I'm trying to become celestial and fair,
I'm learning on earth what it is to share.
I keep stretching my branches trying to grow,
Sometimes my progress seems very slow.
I often think of not letting you down,
I ponder the beauty of your noble crown.
You are a light that is beckoning me,
My mother in heaven, I dearly love thee.
Some days here are so easy and bright,
I feel heavens shower and bask in the light.
Sometimes the distance between
us fades away,
And I feel you near me as I walk through my day.
I experience so much and wish to confide,
The joy and the heartache of my mortal ride.
I wonder what counsel you would give,
Then I open my scriptures and see how you live.
I rejoice in the miracle of my Heavenly King,
And feel so much gratitude for the joy he will bring.
I could not return to my
mother on high,
It is He, my Redeemer that brings me to the sky.
How sacred the gift of belonging to you,
I rejoice that through Christ I am washed and made new.
So far from you and Father I hold to your Son,
I cling to the victory Jehovah has won.
You cannot lose me for I love you best,
I'm determined to be faithful as I finish my test.
I'll keep on missing
you and I'll try to show,
The spark you placed me, as I live what I know.
Thank you for caring and sending your Son,
I cherish the life that my King has won.
My love I send to thee with greatest care,
I miss you my mother so worthy and fair.
