Treasure Island

Wendee Isaacs


My mother....My best friend


She’s been with me throughout my life
Being with me as I grow
Scolds me when I’m wrong
Finds me when I get lost
Holds me when I’m weary
Comforts me when I’m sad
Gives me a shoulder when a cry

She’s been with me in my darkest hour
Always being there to give a hug in my deepest despair
Shared my joys and my sorrows
When pain and sickness made me cry
She gazed upon my heavy eyes
And wept for fear that I might die
She feels my pain like she’s the one going through that

She’s my teacher
She taught me how to pray
She’s my angel
Always there in my fears
Though we have our differences
And I sometimes get angry at her
She will always be my fairy tale princess
I love her to the bone and
I’m thankful to God that I’m the lucky one who gets to call her mother

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
