Poems by Mildred J. Douglass (1908-1988)
Here I Sit...
Here I sit lonely and blue
Because I had no word from you
I looked at my cards of other years
Very few came from you I fear.
Son, when you become old and gray
You reminisce thru out the day
Your mind goes back quite a way
When life was happy and gay.
When you boys ran thru the door
Dirtying many a clean floor
But I was very happy you see
Because I had you all around me.
Years fly by and all things change
Your lives have various range
But I have nothing to say
As I would have it no other way.
But if you get lonely or blue
Just remember I'm always praying for you
That happiness will be your just due
Is your Mother's prayer for you.
