Mother's Day

I dedicate this to my wonderful Mother. She has always been my strength, my hope, my love, my everything.......MY MOTHER!


I would like to share with you a poem that I wrote for my Mother to help her when she lost her MOTHER, a wonderful woman, my GRANDMOTHER, BONNIE MARIE GIBSON! GRANDMA, WE LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH!


My precious baby girl,
Please, do not cry.
I had to leave you in this world,
But I would never say goodbye.

You know I'm with you always,
And I will always be.
Do not be sad, my Daughter,
Some day you'll be with me.

My life HERE is so perfect,
No pain is there for me.
And I've saved a special place here,
For your soul when its set free.

Whenever you get sad,
And lonely, as you do.
Just raise your eyes to HEAVEN,
I am right HERE with you.

Now, carry on, dear DAUGHTER,
Live life the best you can.
Remember, when you need me,
I'm THERE, holding your hand.

By Lagean "Gena" Ellis

Please, take the time to give your support of time or money to CANCER RESEARCH! Too many wonderful lives have ended way too soon.

Absolutely wonderful - got me all teared up! My mom's been gone for 24 years now - I still miss her just as much as ever! I hate that I have nobody in my life to send a mother's day card to anymore and as sappy as some of those cards can be, my son has never heard of Hallmark I guess, so he never gets me one.

What a beautiful poem, thank you for sharing, and thank you for inviting others to donate to cancer research. I lost my father to cancer almost five years ago, and I'm very passionate about supporting cancer research. Happy VGNO and happy Mother's Day!
