Mother's Gift

I look upon this summer sky
A night so dark and bright!
Wanders a thought eleventh May
Mother’s day in my mind

Years now her I lost since
Mother my so dear
Stare my eyes the sky above
A thousand stars alight!

Among the glow and glitter there
One star I find differs
That sends down cool and loving gaze;
Feel whispers soothing words

The love and care so missing long
Drift on me through air
I get a gift on Mother’s Day!
My mother right up there!
