A Pause to remember

A pause to remember, and take a look back.
I need that at times to help stay on track.
It s so easy to think, Life just isn t fair!
I look in the mirror, MORE GRAY IN MY HAIR?
I mutter and moan, at the things I must do.
A soft voice asks What s the matter with you?
I look all around; there s no one else here,
But I hear it again as I shed a small tear.
My child, I know that it really seems bad.
But look at your mother at the trials she had.
There were the measles, the mumps and the pox,
You didn t come wrapped in some neat little box.
You were a real trial of her patience it seems.
At times your lives were like a bad dream.
But she hung in there in faith and in love,
And she often called for strength from above.
My child don t forget, I ve always been there,
And yes, even now, my grace I will share.
A pause to remember, and take a look back.
I need that at times to help stay on track.
