Tribute to Mom
By Dave Thompson, Kenai
In times gone by, as yesterday
My thoughts recalling what they may.
The times of plenty and of few,
And the dearest soul I ever knew.
Oh mom, you’ve made it all worth while,
From tone of voice to friendly smile.
You’ve labored and toiled to see me through
Those childhood years that I once knew.
Now it seems so very strange
I thought those times would never change.
But I grew up and you grew old
Now I see what you have told.
Your tenderness and love for me
Was never wasted needlessly.
For I hold my heart in debt to you
To grant my love our whole life through.
A love so strong that all may see
I love you mom, till eternity.
God knows he could never grant another
More gracious soul than my dear mother.
