~~A MOTHER REMEMBERS~~



MOMENTS IN YOUR LIFE





I remember the days when
you were a child at play.
I would watch and know that
someday, my child would grow
up, into a young adult, leaving to
go on your way.


What's a mother to say.
If she had her way, you would
still be a child at play.
I think back to the day's long
ago when you needed me sooooo.


A scratch on your finger meant
kisses galore.
.........."Mommy make it better,
...........kiss it more, and more."
You needed me.


Your first day at school, so
grown up.
........."Mommy hold my hand,
..........I am afraid to be left alone."
You needed me.


I would stretch out my arms,
watching as you ran into them
for me to wrap them around you.
........."Big hugs Mommy, do it
.........again."
................"I Love You Mommy,"
"Mommy Loves you more."
You needed me.


Hearing your giggles and laughter
as you fell to the floor rolling
around.
....."Aren't I funny Mommy, want
to see me do it again?"
Yes, can you do it once more?
You needed me.


Those were the days of playing
and fun.
Halloween costumes, candy galore,
and tummy ache mornings,
......."Mommy I don't want any more."
You needed me.


Easter Parades...the look on your
face.
Meeting the bunny, who puts your
basket in place.
You needed me.


Christmas with big eyes waiting for
Santa to come, a million questions
about Santa and his reindeer, curiosity
has begun.
....."Mommy are they cold at the
......North Pole?"
......"Mommy does Santa know where
......I live?"
......"Mommy does Santas reindeer
......fly all year?"
You needed me.


At day's end, when all is quite,
and your ready for bed.
It's time for prayers before your
snuggled in bed.


......."Mommy say them with me."
As we both get down on our knees
to pray,
Together we say.........."Now I lay
........me down to sleep.
........ God please send angel's,
.......to watch over me."


"Mommy your turn now."
.......If I should wake before you do
.......you'll find me here waiting for you.
"My turn Mommy."
......."Good Night God, Jesus and His
.......Mommy."
......."God Bless everyone I know."
..................: )


Snuggled all safe in your bed, I give
you butterfly kisses," whispering... my
sleepy little baby, the sandman is here
and dreamland is ahead."


A bear hug are blankets tucked under
neath, keeping you safe and warm.
...............: )
....."Mommy leave the light on
..........and the door a little open."
........."I love you Mommy."
..............: )
"Mommy loves you more."
You needed me.
