POEMS: “Mothers never really die” by Helen Steiner Rice

888900--“Mothers never really die”

Death beckoned her with outstretched hand

and whispered softly of an “UNKNOWN LAND”

but she was not afraid to go

for though the path she did not know

she took death’s hand without a fear,

for He who safely brought her here,

had told her He would lead the way,

into Eternity’s bright way…

and so she did not go alone

into the “Valley that’s unknown”

She gently took death by the hand

and journeyed to the “Promised Land”…

and there with step so light and gay,

she polishes the sun by day,

and lights the stars that shine at night

and keeps the moonbeams silvery bright…

For MOTHERS really never die,


and in the heavenly home above

they wait to welcome those they love.
