Mothers Head Count

Its Mother's Day and the children gathered at home,


A head count is taken to see which one is gone.

The oldest or youngest, whoever is not home is missed,

Each child has his own place on mother's secret list.

The heart hides a pocket, keeping the written past of each,

A very private pocket where only Mom can reach.

A Prayer for the missing child is quietly said inside,

Hoping that the Lord above will hear and protect her child.
