A Mother's Thoughts

My love has gone, he's gone away,
With someone else it's true, 
His final words, his only words
Were, "Mother, I love you."

I stand there on his wedding day.
I tried so not to cry
But all I saw, all I heard
Were sounds of days gone by.

His tiny steps, his little sounds
The faces he would make. 
All these things raced through my mind
I thought my heart would break.

"Control yourself," his father said,
"You've got to realize
The love that you so strongly feel
Is shining in her eyes."

And then I turned to look at her
She looked so full of joy
How young she was & so in love
In love with my fine boy

Twas then I knew the time had come
For me to step asde,
To get down off my pedastal
And make way for the Bride.

Agnes Minchin, date unknown
