Listmates,
In less than an hour it will be Mother's Day here on the west coast. For many of you it is already here, and I hope that all of you who are mothers will have a very good day. As my wife mentioned to me tonight, this will probably be the last Mother's Day that my mother will be here with us. I wish that we could get her up and all dressed up and take her to church so she could get an orchid for this special day. But any time we try to move her it becomes so traumatic for her, and for us, that we don't get her up any more. There are many memories that flood my mind of past Mother's Days and the joy that we shared. I wanted to share this poem with you on this day. God bless you and again, have a very happy day.
Jerry

Another Mother's Day

On this, another Mother's Day.
There is so much I would like to say.
I'll kiss her forehead and say, "Hello."
And wish to God that she could know.
I wish deep down she could understand,
The love we send her as I hold her hand.
I'll tell this dear woman, "I love you Mom."
Yet I wish this day would never come.
This Mother's Day will come and go,
But this dear woman will never know.
I pray, "Dear God, let it be her last."
"For her, don't let another one pass."
My mind goes back to far away years,
When Mother's Day was full of cheers.
The flowers, the smiles, the candy and cards,
We knew that we had touched her heart.
On this, another Mother's Day,
There is so much I would like to say.
I'll kiss her forehead and say "Hello."
And wish to God that she could know.
