old pecan tree just inside the cemetery fence. One

old man with a cane, hobbling along.
“Come here quick,” said the boy, “you won't be-

  “Thank You Momma”
             By Cheryl Gipson

         Many things in life we
     Just assume are always there;
     Like a home; friends; a family,
     And our Momma with her care.

     We know that when we call her,
      Her voice will answer clear;
       And if we ever need her,
     We can trust that she’ll be near.

    Some things we take for granted,
      For all things change in time;
     And many times we’re wishing,
     We’d said what’s on our mind.

        We seem to always think
       She knows our heart is hers;
       But, don’t let the years go by
        And never say the words.

       Some special time for her;
          A letter filled with love;
     Do the thing you’d wish you had
      If she’d left for home above.

       Just a “thank you” Momma
       For the love I know is mine;
       For the times you gave it all                                                                   What people need is the heart of God
