COME FOR CHRISTMAS
Mother, can you come visit here?
I’d love to feel your presence near,
Hear your voice one more time,
Feel your hand holding mine.
Come for Christmas in our home
Bring Daddy too; don’t come alone.
You’ll both be elated and proud to see
who your grandchildren have grown to be.
You’ll hold my grandchildren in your arms,
And soon succumb to all their charms.
Recall the lessons you taught along the way,
As you watch the children while they play.
Mother, may I show you
what has come to be?
Or do you and Daddy
look down to see
The beauty of
In loving memory of Daddy (1967) and Mother (2001)
