a birthday poem

for my Mum

each laugh is a lesson
itself a confession
of He who works all things for our good

each tear tells a tale
that although we still fail
we know He works all things for our good

brief moments of wonder
we cheer at the thunder
we jump in the rain
and we sing at the dawn

all this a reminder
of the one who is kinder
our Father, He works all things for our good
