A silent tear runs down her face
As she lays within this darkened place
Her mind alone cannot forget
Her memories so clear and yet
So long ago her baby's cry
When from her womb the child did fly
Into her heart forever hers
If only for a moment, "Oh why not year's"
And now the moment she has prayed to be
Her last silent tear and her broken heart free

Today, a storm blew through
And tears with rain drops fell.
Out of nowhere, thoughts of you
And a pain began to swell.
Yet in my still reflection,
In this somber introspection
A little brook of bubbling joy
Flowed in, as I remembered as a boy...
When God knit a common tether
Through our daily ways and means.
He wove our lives together
As we courted common dreams.
While storms will always be,
And times of loss will sadden.
There is a Brook of Memories
That will always serve to gladden.
Above the loss of those departed,
Is a solace never leaving.
Held dear within the heart,
A brook of joy is heaving.
To sooth the pain of loss
The God of comfort sent a stream
To wash away our hurts beneath
The Brook of Memories.

Come sit weary mama
How can we honor you best?
Sing praises of him or her?
And when all speeches over,
Still you must continue with that longing
Come grace us with your gaze upon these fields of flowers, yes red flowers
We want you to see our fervent need to thank
Giver of lives who would give theirs
Common mothers do not comprehend
How to raise the brave
How to show what real freedom is
How a baby face with golden locks will crawl
and giggle and look up with sparkling eyes as they suckle
Life eternally precious and trusting
And we the human race
will never get it right or learn from our mistakes
How must we learn to thrive
and still keep trying with what is left
The ultimate punishment will be paid for our naiveté
Our foolish mistakes
We must keep trying or we will cease
And the soldiers mother understands like no other
how we long to keep our fences high
And they will go on in their tottling bouncing curls
to devour freedom as though unending
While the brave ones grow alongside
their destinies unknown but hopeful just the same
We thank you not just today but always
Take my hand sweet soldier’s mama
through the field of memories
when our little ones played in the sun,
red cheeks burned bright
Rushing to your arms as they Loved to Live
and Lived to Love so deeply
Thank You Brave mama
for we could never deem to repay you

When a building is collapsed, you may construct new one When a tree is cut, with a sapling, you may get it done
When money is lost, you may earn When health is lost, you may darn
When you miss to enjoy beauty of dawn, you have a chance When you miss to embrace the breeze, you may get a glance
When you miss a movie, you have the prospect When you miss a bus, next one you may expect
When you miss a poem, you may get the text When you miss a chance, you may wait for the next!
When a mother is lost It indicates the end of the most!
Is there anyone to replace? Or to assure you peace?
None! Not even the god! Or to get back, there is no method!
For god comes in the form of mother! To compare with her, there is no other!!

Who first gave to us the gift
Of how to love each other?
Was it not from infancy,
We gleaned it from our mother?
Who first gave the loving touch
Of tenderness and care?
Was it not a daily gift
Of mother being there?
Who first kissed us on the cheek,
Who studied every trait?
Who would work and toil for us
And who would always “wait.”
Who would stop to listen
And who would kneel to pray?
Who would show the Savior’s love
Day, by day, by day?
From birth until the grave
We forever gain so much,
By laying hold of mother’s love
Like she held hold of us.

We salute every soldier who’s
served this great nation.
And offer a heart of thanks
We salute each member
of our armed forces.
And are thankful for their
efforts and resources!
We salute the many who
protect our borders too.
We’d be in trouble…
If not for people like YOU!
We salute every son and
daughter lost in a war.
YOU are what serving this
country is meant for!
We salute the officers who’ve
guided our women and men.
Our prayers are with you!
And our love from within!
We salute our veterans!
Wherever they may be!
Those who served on
land, air and sea!
Offering prayer to the
Lord is our belief…
That he will guide our
As we observe Memorial Day this year…
Let’s offer our soldiers
love, hope and cheer…
May God bless them in
all they endeavor
And his peace be with them
today and forever!!

Mother of the nation is sleeping here
even birds wept in her funeral
