Poetry by Wanda

My mom passed away November of 2013. My older sister found this poem whilst going through Mom’s things that December.

It wasn’t written by Mom so my sister scoured the internet and found the author, Wanda Bencke

This is beautiful and it sounds like something she would have written herself. She was always very word savvy and poetic. The horse stuck out to me as a cover photo because of Ma’s deep love for them and it also came up during my “Christmas” search.  V3 Ma. We miss you.

“Christmas in Heaven”

Author: Wanda Bencke
I see the countless Christmas trees

Around the world below,

With tiny lights like heaven’s stars

Reflecting in the snow.
The sight is so spectacular

please wipe away that tear

for I am spending Christmas

with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs

that people hold so dear

but the sound of music can’t compare

with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you

of the JOY their voices bring

for it is beyond description

to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me,

I see the pain inside your heart

for I am spending Christmas

with Jesus Christ this year.
I can’t tell you of the SPLENDOR

or the PEACE here in this place

Can you just imagine CHRISTMAS

with our Savior face to face?
I’ll ask him to lift your spirit

as I tell him of your love

so then pray for one another

as you lift your eyes above.
Please let your hearts be joyful

and let your spirit sing

for I am spending Christmas in heaven

and I’m walking with the KING.
