For Amanda

Now is the time to share love and memories with our family and friends
as the gentle sighs of winter settles quietly upon the land

And though there are a many good ones there are those we wish to forget
the are memories that steal a part of you and leave you full of regret

My darling child, never would I have wished you to experience so much pain
no mother's heart would ever want her child to feel so lost and strained

Though your heart is heavy and your outlook so hard, bleak and forlorn
I will be here for you as I have been since the day that you were born

My unfaltering love for you will have no end, and no tragic quirk of fate
could ever change what affections I hold, a love that will never abate

So though times may be hard and they may be demanding
remember I am here and will be ever understanding

As a mothers love is full of arms that can hold and kisses to bestow
on her angel whose sadness leaves her tearful and full of woe

I love you, my angel

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
