Sono Harris — Wife of Gregg Harris

Sono Harris died on July 4. Her son Joel wrote this song for her right before she died.

GOODNIGHT, MAMA

Written July 3, 2010 by Joel Harris

Walking through your door, sitting on your bed

Talking about everything together

We’ll talk into the night, till everything seems clear again

And there’s only one thing left to say…

Goodnight, mama, I’m so glad that you’re here to talk to

Sleep well, I’ll see you soon

Thank you, Jesus, for a mother who pours herself out

Always something more to do

Walking through your door, bringing you your food

Talking about how you slept last night

We only have a little while, till you need to rest again

And there’s only one thing left to say…

Goodnight, mama, I’m so glad that I got to see you

Sleep well, I’ll be back soon

Thank you, Jesus, for a mother who poured her life out

Please fill her anew

Walking through your door, to see you one more time

Thinking about all the times we’ve shared

Not much longer now, because He’s calling you home

And there’s only one thing left to say…

Goodbye, mama, I’m so glad that I got to know you

Farewell, I’ll see you soon

Take her, Jesus, to a place with no pain or sickness

To heaven with you

    Joel, what a beautiful tribute to your mother. I remember when your Dad would speak at Home Schooling Seminars back in the 80’s. He would speak so lovingly of your mother. Praise God for Heaven.

    Wow…just remember reading about Chris Klicka passing and Greg Harris sitting at his bedside not too long ago and now I am reading about Greg’s spouse passing on. Who would have thought. My condolences to your family. You all have contributed so much with your books, workshops, home school helps, and so many other ways. Thank you for giving to the Lord. Thanks for setting such a good example of leadership to Greg. Sincerely, Cindy & family :).
