The forgotten

 She its in her gallery in Trinidad
 On a rocking chair all alone
 So many children she has
 But now it’s just an empty home
 She remembers when it wasn’t
 But that was a long time ago
 But it seems like just yesterday
 She was watching them grow

 Now they all are gone
 With homes and family of their own
 And thought she don’t want to
 She can’t help from feeling unknown

 Her husband ‘god bless his soul”
Is now watching down from heaven
 She knows he is always with her
 So she is never forgotten

 He worked his fingers to the bones
 To make them a comfortable home
 And then she went out and scrub floors
 So she can bring home a little more

 Sending them everyday to school
 And then paying for the best collage
 For to be successful in life
 You need education and knowledge

 She is proud of her children
 And as a mother her heart is please
 Still can’t believe how time flies
 Just yesterday they playing on her knees

 When children leaves their parents homes
 They becomes seekers looking to find
 And often so many times
 Their parent slips from their mind

 They are soon caught in life’s cycle
 A job, wife, husband, getting marred
 Visits and conversations becomes few
 And always rushed or hurried

 This is just part of life
 And parents know this time will come
 And one day we all will have to
 March to the beat of life’s drum

 And every day she blesses them
 And they know they’re in their mothers pray
 And thought she feels forgotten
 She knows they cant always be here

 She fallen a sleep just for a minute 
 But Smile when she becomes awake
 Cause there was her children and grand kids
 Singing happy birthday with a cake
