The time has come for us to part, To never speak in the physical sense again There were so many things that I wanted to say, Yet, so many things I truly wanted to do But time has grown nigh and there is no more what if; or Could of; or would of; to soothe the pain For I must now let you take your final journey To your promise land alone Where peace and tranquility await your presence for Evermore The time has come for me to say goodbye and wish you well I will miss you, for what it’s worth because now there is Emptiness I’ve never known You were a part of my life at all times, Whether I realized it or not, You gave me a part of you to learn and develop from, And for this, I will be forever grateful for Now that we must say goodbye, Until we meet again, I know that you are now safe and cared for You will no longer feel Pain Nor Hunger Nor Stress Nor Defeat Nor Anguish Now that we must say goodbye, I will wait for you in my dreams, Where we will speak once more
This poem was written for my mother’s memorial service held July 7, 1997, at St. Mathew’s Missionary Baptist Church, 3129 San Pablo Avenue, Oakland, CA 94608
She passed away on June 25, 1997; I was 29 years old.
Rest in Heaven mom, you may be gone but you are never forgotten.
