MUMMY’S LOVE

Her love is like

an Island in life’s ocean

vast and wide

A peaceful, quiet shelter

From the wind, the rain, the tide.

 

Tis bound on the north by Hope,

By patience on the West,

By tender counsel on the south

And on the East by West.

 

Above it like a beacon light

Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;

And through the changing scenes

of life

I find a heaven there.
