The Elite Angel Momma Squad

Lean in closer,

and listen for the sweet refrain of love.

Another momma,

just joined the heavenly chorus above.

That last goodbye,

is hard to say and does not seem fair

and then comes the

separation that’s very hard to bear.

You may cry

because the burden is heavy for you.

Remember,

it’s just as hard for your good momma, too.

I am sure she

will continue to do what she does best.

As you well know,

a good momma does not know how to rest.

Her new calling

demands the skill she practiced so much –

she alone has

the gentleness of a momma’s touch.

She will:

welcome the fallen soldier,

comfort the lost teenager,

nurture the sick child and baby,

and as always,

watch over her family.

For a moment,

take a break from your tears and give a nod –

your good momma,

has joined the Elite Angel Momma Squad.
