When Mother Bowed Her Head

A memory for Mother's Day My mind flashed back into the past While making my daughter's bed I saw children there on bended knee As Mother bowed her head Every night before going to bed Four sisters in a row Knelt with Mother to thank the Lord My heart still misses her so She believed in teaching her children In the way that we should go So that we'd never depart from it As we traveled down life's road Time is fickle and the years flew by We grew up and moved away Taking with us all the wonderful things That Mother taught us when we prayed So much has happened since 'way back then Yet it seems like yesterday When a Mother and her four little girls Knelt by the bed to pray Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© April 30, 2008 All Rights Reserved
