Seeds of Hope

In strength, I see my mother,
Holding strong to her convictions;
Loving truth and justice;
Loving her children to no end,
She is the strength inside me,
Planting the seeds of hope
And genuine love from afar;
Only to realize as time passes by,
Her love inside me forever resides.
For God is preparing her soul,
For the heavens above;
To receive his eternal love.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
