A Mother's Hand


As a little girl
I remember all I can
I do remember your guidance
With a mother's hand

You are to me
My building stone
The foundation from which
I'm centered on

I can't thank you enough
For the wisdom of
All you've taught me
Through Jesus love

We've had our differences
As mothers and daughters do
From which we've grown
Into to me and you

Now that I have daughters
I can understand
Wanting to protect them
With a mother's hand

As years go by
And the time we've had
I can't help but feel
My heart is sad

We're so far apart
Across this land
In silence I remember
Your mother's hand

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
