Letter to My Mother

By Walt Perryman

Hello Mom, how are you doing these days?
I have missed you down here in so many ways.

You were only thirty when God took you and I was nine.
I was mad at God for a little while but now I am doing fine.

You went to Heaven way back in nineteen fifty-three.
Yet, in my heart, you have always been here with-in me.

There is a lot going here on earth and some of it is awful bad.
Mom, I wonder if Jesus talks about it and does it make him sad?

I am still trying to be a Christian, but I still have a ways to go.
I reckon I am telling you something that you already know.

Mom, I am trying to do better and live the way God wants me to,
So, someday when God calls me. I can be in heaven with you.

2002 Walt Perryman
