June 17th………POEM – “LITTLE DID I REALIZE” Created by N. Elliott Noorlun. On June 23rd, we will observe the 4th anniversary of our mother’s HomeGoing to Heaven. Traditionally, every March, we would travel home to the Pacific Northwest to celebrate Mom’s birthday. In March of 2017, “Little Did I Realize” that that would be the last time I would receive a farewell kiss from my mother here on earth. This poem reflects upon my musing of that parting kiss.
Little did I realize,
That that kiss was our last kiss,
The close embrace, The gentle hug,
Those treasures I would miss!!
The tender tenor, Of your life,
Your empathetic voice,
Seeking that which is fair for all,
Every breath sought godly choice.
Little did I know, Your span on earth,
Would be o’er just weeks away.
And if I could, I truly would,
Have begged Him for a stay.
So that I could, Just one more time,
See your Norwegian eyes,
As you’d enjoy “your” hummingbirds,
Or praise God for His skies.
Your “little boy”, Is lonely now,
As I dwell yet on this earth.
But gladly my heart, Will overflow,
In abundance, Not in dearth.
For I give God praise, For each glorious day,
We enjoyed your precious being.
Heaven’s reunion, Upon His Shore,
Is what I look forward to seeing!!! ><> 😉
