May 9th……..“GRANDPA, AS GREAT GRANDMA CLARICE GOT OLDER, WAS IT HARD TO KISS AND SAY GOODBYE EACH TIME YOU FLEW BACK HOME”?
POEM – “To Kiss Her Cheek” by N. Elliott Noorlun. This was written in the Spring of 2016, just one year before the Lord took our lovely mother with Him to Heaven in June of 2017. Every year, it got tougher and more emotional for me to leave her apartment with that one last goodbye kiss. Would this be the last time I see her on earth? Only our loving God knew, and in 2017 He called her Home to be with Him.
One more time, To kiss her cheek,
One more time, Her face I seek.
One more time, To hear her voice,
Song to my ear, Of finest choice.
And now in, Her 97th year,
She thinks of others, What a dear!!!
Though harder now, To even stand,
A new quilt’s created, As she’s planned.
When our Heavenly Father, Calls her Home,
Whilst I remain, On this earth to roam,
I’ll ponder moments, Just like this,
When I joyfully came, For one more kiss!!! ><>
