Yesterday And Mama

                                        As I sit by my dear old Mama,
                                        Remembering years gone by,
                                            I see her laughing eyes.
                                                Bright as the stars,

                                         Now they are clouded over,
                                           no longer sharing with me.
                                         Her voice once loud and loving,
                                                now quiet as can be.

                                          Hands that once were busy,
                                                now lay stiff and still.
                                             A hug taken for granted ,
                                                  never more to be.

                                           I will remember yesterday,
                                             and Mama for our family.

    Very nice Anne, makes me think of my mama, I still her her call my name. One morning I woke up smelling her coffee. I don't drink coffee. Also reminds me of the one I wrote not too long ago " Remember US"

    it made me really miss my mom, she was a evangelist and traveled the world when i was a boy, she is the one that brought jesus to me at 9 years of age and taught me to talk to him every day and taught me the true love of christ, thank you for sharing this...
