MOMMY


Don't let them take your smile Mommy,
The smile you showed me I too had
Don’t let them take the smile Mommy,
The smile you wore even when you were sad
Don't allow them to hide that smile Mommy,
The smile, which protects me through all the bad
Don’t let them steal the smile Mommy.
Your, smile Mommy, drove my daddy mad.

For if they take your smile Mommy,
What will I have left to hold on to?
If they take your smile Mommy,
What will remind me of you?
When there is no more smile Mommy
How will I know what to do?
When I cannot see your smile anymore Mommy
I will think: What's the use


Save her smile for me Jesus
So she can be near every time I close my eyes
Save her smile for me Father
Here is the only smile that lights up the skies
Save her smile for me Savior
The beauty of her smile no one could ever deny
Save her smile for me Daddy
Look at me, can you see why?
If I ever forget her smile my King, a part of me will surely die.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
