You ask why I am crying. So let me tell you why.
I was so very angry as I stared into the sky.
I lost my special mother and tears had filled my eyes.
I looked to God for answers but moisture blurred the skies.
I had only asked for answers - an emotional free ride.
I wanted Him to hold me - and keep me near His side.
I didn’t see the sunshine. Dark clouds hung over me.
I couldn’t feel His presence. I couldn’t begin to see….
But when I wiped away my tears, my thoughts were held in awe -
It held me captive for some time - for this is what I saw:
So clear and simple in the clouds - I now know why she died....
The sight of Jesus on the cross – in love, His arms held wide.
You ask why I am crying. I’m crying ‘cuz I’m glad –
I knew that she was everything - and thought was all I had.
