Ode to Mother


I do it all
Cause I believe someday you'll come home
Someday we can go together again
In the house that we build together
I do it all
Cause I still have a hope
Someday you'll go to the place
That I wash every week
That I mop every day
That's why I can survive
And prepare for the day
and the day
to the day
for the day you'll come back again
If there's no place that I can wait
what can I do for you?
Even the law of separated is done
This is a place I can stand for
I'll wait
Till the day you'll come
Until the day
I'll survive for you
Till the day you'll come home

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
