A Prayer Our Mothers Taught Us:
“Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.”
A Special Poem for You. . . ______________________________________________
Mother sings love and forgiveness;
She loves the many-colored Light!
She gives testimony with her love
That the Light has many colors.
And this is why she changes like a chameleon
Capable of loving even the selfish.
She will become whatever color she must in order to love them;
And it does not compromise her to do so,
Because she believes that underneath
Everyone is the color of love.
Mother sings many colors.
I did not think one could sing colors,
But I know now that colors can be sung,
That hope and faith are the multi-colored songs of mothers,
Seeking not to be consoled, but to console!
