  • Angel In The Ashes

    Upon the fireplace mantel
    Sits a picture of my mother and me
    Next to it sits her urn
    With the ashes I could not set free

    I remember when I was young
    She taught me right from wrong
    Some lessons I learned the hard way
    But I’ll remember them all my lifelong

    Whenever I had a problem
    She always tried to lend a hand
    Even if she didn’t know the solution
    She’d still try and help me understand

    We’d work to solve it together
    Till the answer we would find
    The way God intended mothers to be
    When their image he designed

    To me she was an angel
    Sent from heaven above
    God sent her just for me
    Full of kindness, compassion and love

    Whenever life rolls a storm my way
    And the lighting suddenly flashes
    I look to the mantle and know I’ll be safe
    Because there’s still an angel in the ashes
