Mommy, will you read me a story?
In a moment, dear little son
I have some things I must finish first
But I’ll come when the work’s all done
Mommy, can I try to help you
So we can have some fun?
Son, run and play with your sister
Then I’ll come when the work’s all done
Mommy, can you throw this ball to me?
Not right now, precious son
Mother is in a hurry
To get her work all done
…she sits in a chair by the window
Waiting for her darling son
He says he is going to call her
Soon, when his work’s all done

No matter what stage of life we are in, we should only have time to love.
Make this day a memory you will be glad of.
