To My Mother
Prayer of any Husband
Lord, may there be no
moment in her life,
When she regrets that
she became my wife,
And keep her dear eyes
just a trifle blind,
To my defects, and
to my failings kind!
Help me to do the utmost
most that I can,
To prove myself her
measure of a man,
But, if I often fail
as mortals may,
Grant that she never
sees my feet of clay!
And let her make allowance
--now and then---
That we are only grown
up boys, we men,
So, loving all our children,
she will see,
Sometimes, a remnant of
the child in me!
Since years must bring to
all their load of care,
Let us together every
burden bear,
And when Death beckons
one its path along,
May not the two of us
be parted long!
Mazie V. Caruthers
Love, Hilary.
