My Mother-in -law, Frieda, recently passed away and I wrote this in her memory. It was on the funeral bulletin.
Lullaby From Heaven by Brandy Watson
The sun has set,the night has come.
Lullaby, my precious ones.
For I have lived a long, full life
As a Mother,Grandma,Wife.
Sister,Daughter, and dear friend
But now my life on earth must end.
I’ve rocked the babies, dried the tears
Fed countless mouths,throughout the years.
I’ve laughed, I’ve loved, I’ve cried and prayed.
And stitch by stitch,my life was laid
Down in beauty, love’s sacrifice
I’d do it again, I wouldn’t think twice.
But it’s time for me to finally rest
My Father knows what is the best
He’s called me home,free of pain
Soon, I’ll see you all again.
So dry your tears, try not to fret
Though I have left, I’m not done yet.
Dawn has come, I am at peace
Into eternal love,I’ve been released.
