Our Father

Father, I thank you
I thank you for the day, a Mother's Day
Years ago, when despite my trouble
You led me to pick flowers
Pretty, simple, easy to find
Wildflowers, lovely, of your hand
To present to my dear mother
I thank you
And Father, I also thank you
As I present her and myself
Before your awesome throne
That you carry us again
With comfort, endurance and wisdom
Through another dark hour
Soothe my Mom and caress her
Cuddle me up into your powerful arms
Help us to love ourselves as you do
Bring many around us
Who will love us as you say we deserve
