Mother’s Day

Ruth & baby C - 12 Grace Road

Comfort as a reassuring smile
Soft hand upon my brow
Your smile, my calming influence
Remains still with me now

My firm handhold and always there
As I’ve fallen through the years
My solace and my fortitude
Drying all my tears

Loving and returning loved
As I have loved no other
My warming and my sunshine
My rock, my friend, my Mother
