My Mum

Janette Marie

Precious, gentle mother

Prayerful, kind of heart

Welcomer of persons

Young, or old, from near or far

 

Garden always blooming

Flowers all arranged

Cleanliness within

For tasty treats you’re famed

 

Kitchen is abuzz

Confiding, cuppas, fun

Eating, talking, cooking

You, or yours, or everyone

 

Children, children, children

One or two, or twenty-four

Painting paper, bricks or pavement

Lego, Barbie, cars and more

 

Drive you to the hospital

To church or Boy’s Brigade

Deliver pamphlets, meals and love

In birth or death or just g’day

 

Singing nursery rhymes or hymns

Any tune or note or pitch

Burn the veges or the sausages

Roasts go off without a hitch

 

Boil the kettle, hang the washing

Iron and vacuum, mop the floor

Change the sheets before the next lot

Comes a-knocking on the door

 

One moves out, and one moves in

Army, neighbourhood and youth

Follow moving van to homes

Old ones gone, new friends en-group

 

Laughing, crying, sorry

Cuddle, comfort, pray

Petticoat and lipstick

Barefoot, loving God all day
