Tribute to a Housekeeper
This Tribute is dedicated to all the Housekeepers that work so hard on behalf of humanity. May the Angels above watch over them and
and continue to grace them with skills of excellence.
is a place in Heaven's home
Spectacular to see,
In honor of your daily role,
Where Angels go to be
in this place a tribute hangs
Of gold and marble lace;
Of golden stars that dangle high
Reflecting Heaven's grace.
dangled stars are quite unique
They're molded with great care
By cleaning Angel squads above
Who cherish each as rare
each star a name appears
Beneath three diamond chips,
For each housekeeper known on earth,
Encased in marble strips
diamond chips each represent
The value of your role;
The reason God above ordained
A place called "Keeper's Bowl."
every Angel knows your role
How hard you work each day,
The many chores that you must face,
The dangers in your way
risk of slips-and-falls run high
With chemicals that harm,
The aches and tears that no one sees;
You hide, to not alarm
Angels look on earth below
They watch each cleaning crew
And in their hearts a tribute sings
To honor all you do
mop, you dust, you organize
You manage with great speed;
You clean, you sweep, you disinfect,
You handle every need
in your name a star appears
Inside a crystal dome
That shines so bright--it causes praise
And Honors Heaven's Home.
A special thank you to my Aunt Diane (Stony
Brook Hospital, NY) for her willingness to share about her
role and making this tribute possible.
