Mother's Lullaby

Mother don't worry, I killed the snake that was lying in wait Mother don't worry, I've got you when you need me, Mother remember who was with me... Mother remember the blink of an eye when I breathed through your body So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten Sons are like birds flying upwards over the mountain, Mother I made it up from your loving arms, Mother lost it all, of the fear of the Lord, I was given you Mother like the whispered word's you said to me, Mother forgive me may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten Sons can be birds taken sent up to the father, Mother don't worry I've got wings and some friends to visit you on the other side, Mother remember that you cried 'til the morning So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten Sons are like birds flying always over the mountains so you'll never be alone.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
