My Life Rests In You, Mom…
My life rests with you dear mother!
It’s the secret we both share,
Yet it’s true, there is One other,
One who’ll teach you how to care.
Mom, I know you feel rejected,
That you hurt and are afraid,
Yet inside I feel protected,
We’re both in God’s image made.
You may wish things to be different…
T’was His will that I should be,
I know mom, you’re not indifferent
Deep inside, know, “You love me.”
[Turn to Him in joy or sorrow
He’ll assuage heartache and pain,
Each day brings His new tomorrow
Making lives worthwhile again.]
Life is filled with much frustration.
Now it’s hard to sing a song,
But your love will bring elation,
And God’s love will keep you strong.
Life is dear and oh so precious,
Love me mom and you will see
That our joys will be infectious
Shared with all, especially me.
We’ll love life and laugh together,
Pain and anguish? Maybe some,
But I promise, nothing’s better.
Me? To learn, “I love you mom!”
