Her love is like
an island in life’s ocean,
vast and wide
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the wind, the rain, the tide.
’Tis bound on the north by Hope,
By Patience on the West,
By tender Counsel on the South
And on the East by Rest.
Above it like a beacon light
Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;
And thro’ the changing scenes of life
I find a haven there.
Mother’s Day Poem
M — is for the million things she gave me,
O — means only that she's growing old,
T — is for the tears she shed to save me,
H — is for her heart of purest gold;
E — is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
R — means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell
A word that means the world to me.
