A shout out to God

I remember those last words she said to me, "I love you"

an unoriginal expression of love, but it means the entire world to me

she was my guardian,

my protector,

my friend,

my mother.

and she was taken away  from me at the age of twelve 

People say you die because God needs that person up in heaven with Him. 

If that is so then she must really be needed up there,

because she was taken from someone who needs her very much. 

I do not blame God for her departure. 

I just wish she wasn't needed so soon.
