    great

    Her every wish fulfill;
    And even if Thou must refuse
    In anything, let Thy wise will
    A comfort bring such as kind mothers use.

    Ah, hold her by the hand,
    As once her hand held mine;
    And though she may not understand
    Life's winding way, lead her in peace divine.

    great poem
    great write, great 10++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    An amazing poem, the reader after reading this poem becomes so sentimental and starts thinking about his own mother. (Report)Reply

    An emotional tribute to a mother and a humble prayer seeking peace for her in this world as well as in her afterlife. Great poem. Thanks. (Report)Reply
