Hope for Mom

Today in church this word came up today, our church has a cat that stays on the premises,  The cats name is Hope, she made it in the church and while the sermon was going on she made her presence known, she kept circling the pastor.  So he finally had to say hello Hope.  Then tonight my mom sent me something I had wrote for her a couple years ago for Mother's Day. I still have all these hopes for her.  Hope that she still has the happiness I see in this picture when she was younger.  Hope that one day she won't have to work so hard, and will be able to relax and sit out in front of her house like Nana used too and enjoy her children coming to visit her.  I hope for her all the happiness on this day and every day.  God Bless my mother!  And bless her a lot!  Hope don't you love it!

Hope for Mom

by Derek

I hope you feel the fortune of your years,
I hope. For all of our love
This day must bring you happy tears
And thoughts that joyful music prove.
I hope, for all our love,
There is an island, be it small,
And thoughts that joyful music prove
Beyond what years you may recall.

There is an island, be it small,
Amid the passions of the sea,
Beyond what years you may recall,
Where you in silent grace can be.

Amid the passions of the sea,
This day must bring you happy tears.
Where you in silent grace can be,
You feel the fortune of your years

I love you mom, hope when you find
those silent times, you think of us
and know we love you so much.  I wish
I could be there with you today with
everyone.  But just know my heart is
there with you.  Thank you God for the
best mom in the world.

Love
Derek
