    Momma sick
    As I look upon the face of my mother.
    I see my life flash before my eyes.

    She

    So patiently removes the bits of glass that got in my hand,
    From playing on the cements playground, when I fell down.

    The special smile she shared with me.
    A message only we understood...

    My Momma sick,

    And my heart feels heavy.
    Seem like she is getting better
    Yet I never thought this far ahead
    That Momma would ever be sick like this
    Our Mother Queen who fought on the line
    For the freedom of US…What can I do?
    A strength that make the mightiest
    Shake in there shoes…
    A loving care that brings
    butterflies, and birds
    to her feet
    My Momma

    My hands massage
    The muscle in her back
    Singing a ancient tune
    Words I do not know
    Reaching deep within me
    Willing the ancient to me
    To help me
    In the healing
    My eyes dare not tear
    For the joy of knowing my Momma
    Is a blessing that have been
    Bestowed upon us
    And all I want to do is
    Bring her comfort
    And think good thoughts only
    So strange it is
    As I think of my Momma
    I see my life flash
    Before my eyes

    No there's no one like a loving, caring, kind, and gentle mother. I don't even know what to tell you what to do, but I can send up prayers to the one who knows all,and that's just what I'll do for you my sister.

    Yes indeed, our mother is in dire need of our support, love, strenght and most of all UNITY. She can become well again but...it would take ALL her children to nurse her...

    Wow is all I can say
    I felt this one
    Feel tears swelling up in my eyes as well
    Shhh...don't tell anyone :blush:

    I have felt this way before when my mother was sick
    But by the grace of God she got better
    I'm praying for that same grace for your mother
    Much love Blue
    With U 100% my sister
