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 Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
