My Mother

b:9~16~1916   d:7-14-1949

I’d like to wander back again to days of long ago
To sit within the circle there and watch the firelight glow
Upon familiar face of the ones I used to know.
I’d like to listen to their footsteps passing to and fro.

I’d like to wander back to childhood joys upon the farm,
And feel that I was safe again from every passing harm,
Secure against all follies and temptation’s luring charm.
And rest again within the shelter of my mother’s arm.

I’d like to be a child again within the walls of home,
And live in peace and happiness, nor wish to stray or roam. For tho’ I climb over mountains grand or sail the ocean’s foam, I’ll never find, in all this world, a dearer mother or a happier home.

I’d like to kneel beside the bed and to my Father pray,
And trust to Him my wishes in the old time childish way,
For He is still my Father, and I hear Him gently say,
"I will always be your Guide my child, and will guard you night and day."
