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 Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
