A Vision Of Mother
Oft' my mothers drift back to childhood
To the time when I was free,
As I played before the fireside
'Round my darling mother's knee.
There's a blessed home up yonder,
Where my loved ones wait for me.
I saw mother in a vision
Kneeling there to pray for me.
Then one day our mother left us.
Daddy said she'd gone to rest.
I remember how she loved me,
As she clutched me to her breast.
Some sweet day I'll meet you, mother;
Your little boy is coming home
To see you as in days of childhood,
The one you loved and left alone.
