missing my mom on her birthday

Walk with me

the grass withers and the flowers fade, my time with you I would not trade.   to hear your voice and see your smile, please walk with me just one more mile.

I know you’re going to a wonderful place, filled with light and joy and grace — but I want once more your warm embrace, to look upon your familiar face.

My journey is long with many a trial, please walk with me just one more mile.

I guess I knew one day you’d rest and I’d be left to face life’s test — without my mother by my side, to cheer me on, to praise, to chide.

But before you go, for just a while — please walk with me just one more mile.

I know you must go to the place He’s preparing, still my heart will not cease caring; you will soar above the rank and file–but walk with me just one more mile

the path that once held bend after bend, has without warning shown its end; still, there’s much on the path that would beguile — please walk with me just one more mile

before you leave to take your place, walking with Jesus face to face;  then I’ll with hope filled sorrow watch you go into the arms of Him who loves you so —

to walk the painfree path above, prepared for you with Jesus’ love.  someday I’ll join you on your journey — walk with you in God’s eternity;

though now I pray that for awhile, you would walk with me just one more mile.

“In My Father’s house are many rooms;  if it were not so, I would have told you.  I am going there to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also may be where I am.”  (John 14:2-3)

“For now we see through a glass darkly; then we shall see face to face.  Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.” (1Cor. 13:12)

Happy Birthday,  mom

sincerely,         Grace Day

  1. What a touching tribute. Your mom was a blessed woman who left a beautiful impression on your heart my beloved sister.


  2. So beautiful, Barb … my mama’s birthday was yesterday; she suddenly died in 2009. I like you mourn the loss of her presence this side of Heaven, but we too share in the hope of being by our mom’s side again & walking with them hand-in-hand in Heaven! ❤️🙌
