"Mother Dear," by Ercole Bonjean

Mother Dear,

Of my life you are the centre,
You give me joy and give me shelter.
How wonderful it is
To greet you with a kiss
Or a thoughtful caress
On the palm of your hand.
Last night I dreamt of you
And in the dream I hugged you;
Then my sorrow fled me
As your hand caressed me;
My face is now bright,
As I am woken by your smile.
I now look at life in awe
As I step through the door!

Ercole Bonjean
