'' A Mother Never Forsakes ''

On Mothers day,
Let us pray,
To all those who have passed,
Our message of love we can convey,
In our hearts your memory’s cast.

When you left,
We felt bereft,
We never thought we’d part,
But this memory thing is pretty deft,
We still feel you in our heart.

Though we feel regret,
We won’t forget,
That sacrifice you made,
You made sure we didn’t fret,
You ensured we made the grade.

Five of us,
Without much fuss,
Only a Mother could cope,
Through our tales you could drive a bus,
But you never once gave up hope.

I have to tell,
We’re all doing well,
You kept us all on song,
We know at times you went through Hell,
But you taught us right from wrong.

It’s not a lie,
You never die,
We’ll keep your legacy alive,
At times like this we’ll stop and cry,
Your memories will help us thrive.

Because of you,
We’re seeing life through,
We learned from our mistakes,
You loved us all but what is true,
‘’ A Mother Never Forsakes ‘’

I AM not One who much or oft delight

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
