A Mothers' Worth

I had to sing a lullaby
While the world slept peacefully,
To bring to mind the wakeful nights
That Mother spent with me.

I had to climb the stair at dusk
With sleepy children too,
To know how weary she was when
Her busy day was through.

I had to make decisions that
Brought many heavy sighs,
The way she disenchanted dreams
Of mine that were unwise.

No dearer Mother, I was sure,
Had ever graced the Earth,
But I had to be a Mother too,
To truly know her worth.

Lovely to have you visit here,Jessica.Your blog title caught my eye,as I'm a direct descendant of John Bunyan, through my paternal Grandfather,and our family likes reading lots of "old stuff" too.
