The Love Of A Mother



My hands were busy,
Through the day,
I didn't have much time to play
The little games,
You asked me to...
I didn't have much time for you.

I'd wash your clothes,
I'd sew and cook,
But when you'd bring your picture book,
And ask me please you share your fun...
I'd say; "A little later son.."

I'd tuck you in,
All safe at night,
I'd hear your prayers,
Turn out the light..
Then tiptoe softly to the door...
I wish I'd stayed a moment more..

For time goes on,
The years fly past,
A little boy grows up so fast..

No longer is he by your side,
His precious secrets to confide.

The picture books are put away,
There are no longer games to play.
My hands once busy,
Now are still..
The days are long and hard to fill

No goodnight kiss,
No prayers to hear..
These all belong to yesteryear...

I wish I could go back and do
Those little things you asked me to...

Sentiment like this for the useless loss of young American lives has come, four years, and about 2000 draped flags too late.

And to see it posted by a person who was a proud Bush supporter until VERY recent times makes me want to puke.

Isabellah, get over there with Moderate Conservative, you arse wipes will never wash this blood from your hands no matter how many heartfelt poems you post from people who lost kids in a war you supported from the get go.

Let me see you post a self-composed poem of heart felt apology to the 'Mother' this poem speaks to.

On a day where many mothers are being honored by their children, there are many children, fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters that will never be able to honor anyone.

It is us that should be honoring the fallen soldiers. Unfortunately, their honor has been hidden from view by a White House that would not allow for them to be recognized.

My heart goes out to all mothers who have loved ones that have died during this ill-advised, based upon lies, and unnecessary war.

A happy Mother's day seems so shallow at this point. It has to be something more personal and from the heart.

How can we ever convey that to a mother that has had such a loss?

Q Gordon you said:

We simply can't and ALL the Republican supporters, including the person who put up this post need to hang their heads in eternal shame.

useless sentimental crap.
No one forced them to fight Bush's war.
A good soldier is a deserter

no mention of the 1.5 millions of iraqis slaughtered thanks to US agression and greed.
I save my tears for iraqis mums

Yes, indeed not a mention for the Iraqi mothers and their dead sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, cousins, uncles, grandparents, who did nothing to us to deserve the horrors we reigned down on them.

Kate isn't a Mother. She slaughtered her babies with an abortion as any liberal would

ANON: 8:33 be sure to leave your email address and I'll be sure that you receive a copy of my controversial book when it is released. It addresses issues like abortion, and adoption. You may find it interesting. There will be some pictures for you to colour in.
