A Prayer To Mother


I pray I am not late...to place this prayer in thine plate, that with mine own hand hath baked. Dear Lord, Thou hast known A mother's love and tender care And Thou wilt hear, while for the people's Mother most dear I make this birthday prayer. Protect her life, I pray, Who gave the gift of life to me; And may she know, from day to day, The deepening glow of Life that comes from Thee. As once her breast Fearless and well content I laid, So let her heart, on Thee at rest, Feel fears depart and troubles fade away. Her every wish fulfill; And even if Thou must refuse In anything, let Thy wise will and comfort bring such as kind mothers use. Ah, hold her by the hand, As once her hand held ours; And though she may not understand Life's winding way, lead her in peace divine.I cannot pay my debt For all the love that she hath given me Bless her in earth and heaven. AMEN

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
