~ A Motherís Prayer ~

He was so handsome with his eyes of blue;
They were as bright and sparkling
As the stars that shone in the darkest night;
He was an explorer, looking under rocks and logs,
Bringing her his find of snakes and frogs;
He could make her laugh until tears ran down her face;
She prayed for his safety, his health, and happiness
As he becomes a man and enters unknown worlds to run lifeís race;

She holds him close to her heart every day, year after year,
And she never forgets the laughter he created;
When she dreams her dreams of his angelic face
She smiles, and then tears take their place,
Wishing she could have done more
To protect him from the devil's arrows,
She prays for the day eternal sleep o'er takes him
And the cold mantle of death covers his cheeks
That he has completed the task God sat before him;
So that his name will be written in the Lamb's Book of Life
