Poems by Mildred J. Douglass (1908-1988)
Note: written three days after the death of her mother, Fannie Agusta Dustin Munson (1880-1964)
Silently she lies beneath the sod
Her call was heard and answered by God
"Oh, let me die before the snow falls"
God heard and answered her wistful call.
Empty are hearts since she went away
But we would want it no other way
Her life was long suffering for years
We prayed that Jesus would end her tears
Now she and Dad lie side by side
Together to cross the great divide
On that glorious day when Christ appears
And gathers together his children here
Then we shall meet together again
And all will should a blessed Amen.
