MAMA'S WATERING FLOWERS IN HEAVEN
HAVE YOU EVER MARVELED AT THE BEAUTY OF SPRING,
Submitted by: hayseed
A FEW DROPS OF WARM SPRINKLING RAIN.
SOON LITTLE BUDS POP UP TO OPEN INTO LOVELY FLOWERS,
GOD SENT THEM WATER IN THE FORM OF SHOWERS.
WHILE ON EARTH MAMA CARRIED A POCKET OF SEEDS,
SHE KEPT HER GARDEN FREE OF UNWANTED WEEDS.
SHE WORKED, SHE HOED, SHE PLANTED WITH CARE,
UNWANTED GROWTH DID NOT SPOUT - IT WOULDN'T DARE !
NOW MAMA IS IN HEAVEN WAY UP IN THE SKY,
GOD'S ROSE GARDEN CAPTURED HER EYE.
SO NOW SHE KEEPS BUSY - THERE'S LOTS TO DO,
FILLING THE CLOUDS WITH WATER IN A SKY OF BLUE.
HER LITTLE SPRINKLING CAN WILL NEVER RUST AWAY,
THERE'S PLENTY TO DO IN GOD'S GARDEN EVERY DAY.
SO WHEN YOU SEE A RAIN CLOUD MOVING ACROSS THE SKY,
IT WILL BE FULL OF WATER - AND YOU'LL KNOW WHY.
MAMA IS HAPPY DOING THIS WONDERFUL DAILY JOB,
SO WHEN YOU THINK OF HER - DON'T BE SAD OR SOB.
EACH YEAR THE FLOWERS WILL HAVE A NEW BIRTH,
AS THEY SPRING FORTH FROM THE WARMTH OF EARTH.
SOMETIMES YOU MIGHT EVEN SEE A BUTTERFLY,
AS IT FLUTTERS ACROSS THE SUMMER SKY.
IT'S MAMA AS SHE VISITS HER GARDEN HERE ON A SUNNY DAY,
THEN BACK TO HEAVEN SHE WILL RETURN TO STAY.
THE FLOWERS DRINK THE RAIN THAT MAMA SPRINKLES DOWN,
THEY BLOOM AND SOON COVER THE AREA ALL AROUND.
ACROSS HEAVEN, WITH A SPRINKLING CAN, SHE'S TRAVELED MANY A MILE,
SO REMEMBER OUR MAMAS ARE HELPING GOD AND WEARING A SMILE.

I remember my Mother busy with her flowers. She took
very good care of them and always was planting new
bulbs, getting cuttings from a neighbor to start a
pot of her own. trying to save what she could when
the harsh winters arrived. She loved Angel Wing
Begonias. My Grandmother also had lots of flowers
blooming in her yard. There would be Tiger Lilies,
and I also remember her old dented dish pans of
Moss Roses sitting in the back yard on a dead tree
stump. The bright colors sparkling in the sun. When
spring arrives and the Butterflies come to visit ---
I know these two precious ladies are near.
