Poems for Moms
-Darlene MillerAs I was washing dishes, oh! my hands were moving fast, And still upon occasion, a dish came flying past.
For there beside me, to my left, a little lad of three Was standing on a kitchen chair, so gladly "helping" me!
He filled my sink much faster than my hands could get things clean, A child with more ambition I don't think I've ever seen!
And to my right...another chair...another lad of three (A twin to brother on the left, most folks can plainly see).
He too was helping joyfully, a smile upon his face, While for each cup or bowl he rinsed, somehow he found a place.
They looked a bit haphazard, all those dishes left to dry, And it seemed inefficient when observed by well-trained eye.
Two little boys were soaking wet when we at last were through. I could have done a better job all by myself, it's true.
Yet I feel so rewarded, though my dishes may not shine, for we were building bridges from their little hearts to mine!
Thanks for being here, Lord, in the middle of the night, While I'm nursing little Andrew
Automatically I start to praise you, and pray for those in need, as I wake, enter the nursery, and rock in the loveseat.
Precious times they've been Lord, in the middle of the night, Just you and I and little Andrew.
My cry at first was, "Why, Lord? Why doesn't he sleep through?"
You answered the next day with: "My grace will do."
So I say thanks, as this stage nears its close, for being here, Lord, in the middle of the night. Just you and I and little Andrew.
