Mother's Day Poem (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)


Thank you for making all my birthdays bright
Celebrating all my years

Thank you for getting up late at night
And dispelling all my fears

Thank you for the values you taught me
Being patient as I learned

Thank you for filling me with glee
At every milestone I turned

Thank you for teaching me to be a woman
Others could look up to

Thank you for doing everything under the sun
That you could possibly do

Thank you for showing me the kind of mother
My son would need me to be

Moving Forward (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Step by step, I step     I hear the angels sing    Hope, today, they bring  Flying up with pep  I become Heaven's rep    Riding along God's wing
Moving forward can be hard     Struggling through today      Living life is not all play The fortune teller draws a card It warns that Fate has no guard     Never let pain get in your way
Flying high with my life      I am moving, so I'm living     Heart and heart, I keep giving I will one day meet my afterlife  Everyone's past contains strife       Let my future be thanksgiving
When the steps run out      I will just fly and fly and fly      I leave the past with a goodbye Up on God's wing, I won't pout  Going to heaven, I do not doubt     In hell, I was just a passerby 
Moving forward, strength will build     Letting go is the hardest part     Vitality comes from being smart Trust in those that are strong-willed Our honest actions will be fulfilled      I step, I sing to you, I fly, I depart
