Treasure Island

By Our Side

I can remember that time of the year
That my mom worked every day and night
In which she got every little sleep
It was of hard for her to do because always shed tears
But she had a promise that she swore to keep

I know that felt a lot of body aches and pain
She did every to put that little bit of money in the jar
But the more she put away was much more of a gain
She either walked or caught the bus because we had no car

Even thought we always had little money
We barely saw her but her voice on the phone
And she said, ' I will keep my promise honey.'
I known it was hard to having to take care of us alone

Yes, those days we hard on her and us
But she always kept her promise to provide
Even though we had some unwanted thing, but we never put up a fuss

Yes those years were hard for a Single Mom, but I am glad she always was there By Our Side

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,
