Mommy Says

Mommy says I’m really sick.

My body doesn’t work right.

Mommy says if she had one wish

She’d save my sweet and broken life.


Mommy says I will be happy

and free from tears and fear.

Mommy says I will be safe

With a body fully healed.

Mommy says I will never be alone.

God will hold my hand.

Mommy says I will find heaven

to be a sacred, beautiful land.


Mommy sings me lullabies

because I’m afraid to close my eyes.

Mommy holds me near her heart

As I see a white, descending light.

Mommy hears no more quiet cries

For I have fallen asleep under a royal sky.


Mommy prays to God for me

For God has set my spirit free.

And mommy will someday get to see

that God has always walked with me.
