My Sympathy


I'm sorry you've lost your mother
I know she was precious to you.
I understand how you feel,
For I lost my mother too.

I know you loved her very much
But, Jesus loved her best.
There's much consolation in knowing
She is now His heavenly guest.

Of course, you'll miss her more and more
As the days go by
And sometimes you may even
Breakdown and cry.

So go on and mourn
The lost of your mother,
Knowing that Jesus
Is closer than a brother.

And soon one day without a doubt
You'll rejoice in remembering
What a mother's love was all about.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
