"Mother"

Written by: bill frew

I float within a billowing cloud
Enveloped in puffs of white
Drifting along in a world upside down
I playfully bounce out of sight!

I live with my friends who softly trill;
They hop and bob, making me smile
My life has begun with such a thrill,
I'm contented and loved all the while!

A shadow has ceased my reverie
And tears I cannot help but cry;
That woman again is looking at me
With a world of love in her eyes!

Years flew by like clouds in the sky
And my life grows weary and cold-
But I'll always see the love in the eyes,
Of my Mother whom I long to behold!
