Sweet Mother (600 hits)


Sweet Mother ~ Dedicated in memory of my mother and those like her

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sweet as candy, full of grace
Can’t erase your smiling face;

When it hurts or when it’s broken,
Healing words you’ve always spoken;

Little food or out of money,
We never lacked ‘cause you were sweet as honey;

Woke up early to get ready for school,
‘Cause we knew you weren’t raising no fool;

Warning us to prevent a major crisis,
We benefitted from your sacrifices;

Two jobs, three jobs, or whatever it took,
You still made it home to hear us read our book;

Laying down - eyes filled with tears,
You worked so hard all of those years;

Love you; love you, dear sweet Mother,
Because of you – there is no other!
