Poet: David V. Bush
Who sacrificed her all for me?
Who gave with spirit warm and free?
Who guarded me from cradle days
Through life's peqolexing, troubled ways,
Indiff'rent to reward or praise?
Who kissed the teardrops from my face?
Who calmed my brow with gentle grace?
Who soothed my childish soul to rest,
And rocked me close against her breast,
The while her arms were 'round me pressed?
Who had no pleasure save in mine?
Who helped me win with heart benign?
Who worked for me through every gale,
In spirit firm, in body frail,
'Til rosy cheeks grew seamed and pale?
Who freely gave the best she had?
Who trained aright her little lad?
And who today no longer fears,
But reaps rewards for all the tears
She shed through lean and anxious years?
Why God Gave Us Mothers
Poet: Ida Sandage
There had to be someone to care
Someone to grieve when we're not there
Someone to offer up a prayer
When we are weak and sinning!
Someone just has to love us still
When all the world has used us ill.
And aid us with unflagging will
To start a new beginning!
Someone just has to think we're great
Proud lords and masters of our Fate,
And give us praise that will elate
So we can beat our brothers!
Somebody has to cheer us on
And aid us when all hope is gone
To bravely face another dawn,
And so God gave us - Mothers!
