Thought for the Month

By Yolanda Cohen

A photo of a mother and her daughter

If every child could have felt her love
They'd have a sense that they belong
Then there would be less children
On a path that's leading to wrong

If every child could have heard her pray
And hear her say 'It's gonna be alright'
Then no child would have a cause
To cry to sleep at night

If every one everywhere
Learned to give as mother did
Then none would lack of anything
Of things they need to live

Every corner of the world
Would be a better place
If every child every where
Could have felt her warm embrace

Now Mother is up in heaven
Rewarded for all she did
God said, "I felt your love for me,
Each time you loved a kid"
