A Poem Of Inspiration And Hope…

” I Do Believe In God Above “

At the hospital I overheard a Mother and Daughter saying together.
Just before they wheeled her off to another surgery,
Mom said to her Daughter, “I love You Baby,
I Hope You Plenty,” The Daughter said,
“Mom, You have given me plenty in life.
It’s your love I have treasured and needed,
I Hope You Plenty, too, Mom.”
Just then Mom sited this poem for her titled, “You For Me”

“ You For Me ”

If I should die and you’re not there
I shall be looking for you everywhere
If I can’t find you because you’re not there
I’ll wait for you by the golden stair

I do believe in God above
he created you just for me to love
so if I go before you do
I will stand by and wait for you

Keep your love alive in me
because once again we will be
together Forever for Eternity
because God created You For Me…

There were many tears of Love and they kissed
and she was wheeled off.
The Mother came over and sat next to me.
She started crying so I offered her some tissue.
I was curious and she knew by asking,
“have you ever said a good-bye to someone
knowing it would be forever?”
“Yes, I have,” I replied. Please forgive me for asking,
but why is this your last Good-bye?
My Daughter has a brain tumor and this is her third surgery.
The Doctor’s said she probably will not survive this time.
I never heard you say good-bye but rather, I Hope You Plenty.
Can I ask you just what that means?
Our family has passed this down from generation to generation.
I remember my Mother and Father both saying it to everyone.
When we would say to someone, I Hope You Plenty.
We were wanting the other person to have a lifetime filled
with enough good things to perpetuate them.
Our meaning was, I Hope You Plenty of love to always feel special
because you are. I Hope You Plenty of happiness to keep your spirit
alive. I Hope You Plenty of hello’s to help you through the final good-bye.
She then began to sob and I offered her more tissue and a Heart Felt Hug.
To all my loved one’s and friends, I Hope You Plenty!!!!!
It takes only a moment to discover someone special,
a few moments to appreciate them, but then it takes an entire
lifetime to forget them.

“ He’s Always Near “

God’s Angel’s of mercy, love and grace
help our Lord with his created race
they are guardians of people everywhere
his ethereal Angel’s drift through the air

These are his Angels full of love
sent to us from God above
open wide your heart and home
God promises you won’t be alone

In our times of great despair
let God’s love show you he does care
he’s always reaching out his arms to you
because our great creator does love you

When you feel there is no hope
God’s Angel’s will always help you cope
he wants to wipe away your tears
and reassure you He’s Always Near…

NOTE: Many People We Love And Cherish Are Taken
Away From Us For Various Medical Reasons
Betond Our Control.
Please Love Those Close To You Now
And Always As Tomorrow Is Never Guaranteed!
