Remembering My Mom


Remembering my mom, her laughter and tears

Remembering my mom how she allayed my childhood fears

Remembering my mom her wise counsel and sage

Remembering my mom, fond memories engage


She could be a stern disciplanarian, her voice enough

She could on somethings be indeed very tough

But there were plenty of smiles and laughter as well

As from child to adult I moved to dwell


Especially, her faith shone through

Her love of God all who met her soon knew

Her prayers, earnest and sincere

Once again I'd love to hear


Notes:  Mom lived to be 87 and a half years old.  She died in 1987   Hattie Irene Clingerman nee Schenck     Oct. 16, 1899 - April 13, 1987
