Mama Hold My Hand

When I was just a little tot...

The first time I tried to stand....

I looked around as if to say....

Mama hold my hand.

So many times I walked and fell...

And hurt myself and cried...

Mama would kiss away my tears...

And was my navigating guide.

Then my first day starting school....

I was as scared as I could be...

But mama took me by the hand ...

And did her best to comfort me.

Well, many years have passed since then...

I have grown children of my own...

And with all the years of wear and tear...

She's now in a nursing home.

Now the roles are completely reversed...

And I've come to understand...

The woman who once was so strong....

Now can hardly stand.

But mama please don't worry....

I'll be there at your command...

And whenever you may need me...

I'll say mama hold my hand~

I would like to thank Elaine for

letting me use her beautiful poetry.
