To Our Mother
Marie E. Smalls
Our Queen’s Crown
Heaven lit up with a mighty presence, as the Angels all looked down.
Today the Lord was placing the jewels into our mother's crown.
He held up a golden crown, as our darling mother looked on.
He said in His gentle voice, 'I will now explain each one.'
The first gem,' He said, 'is a ruby, and it is for endurance alone,
For all the nights you waited up for your children to come home.'
For all the nights by their bedside, you stayed until the fever went down.
For nursing every little wound, I add this ruby to your crown.'
An emerald, I will place by the ruby, for leading your children in the right way.
For teaching them the lessons, that made them who they are today.'
For always being right there, through all life's important events.
I give you a sapphire stone, for the time and love you spent.'
For untying the strings that held them when they grew up and left home.
I give you this one for courage.' Then the Lord added a garnet stone.
"I'll place a stone of amethyst, ' He said. 'For all the times you spent on your knees,
when you asked if I would take care of your children, and then for having faith in Me.'
"I have a pearl for every little sacrifice that you made without them knowing.
For all the times you went without, to keep them happy, healthy and growing!'
'And last of all I have a diamond, the greatest one of all,
for sharing unconditional love whether they were big or small.
"It was your love that helped them grow feeling safe and happy and proud.
A love so strong and pure it could shift the darkest cloud.'
After the Lord placed the last jewel in, He said, 'Your crown is now complete,
You've earned your place in Heaven with your children at your feet.'
Thank you, Mommy for all the love, nurturing and care!
