Warmth from mother
Nursing us through infant years
Always on hand
To wipe away the tears

“Don't forget your hat!”
She would say
Insisting upon it
Even on a mild day

She would take us shopping
And not lead us astray
Sensible clothes
Make a sensible day

Years later I would smile
As the fiasco's we would live
She swore by one thing
Our tempers would give

“Bring him home to meet us!”
I would quiver at the idea
An inquisition without pardon
A jailor I fear

“I wouldn't let a child of mine say that to me!”
Her grandson would sneer
And then
He would flee

They wish the best for us
Instil the child with love
Then cross their fingers
And gain hope from above
