Mother's Day Poem - Rock Me To Sleep By: Elizabeth Akers Allen


Rock Me To Sleep

By: Elizabeth Akers Allen

Mother, dear mother, the years have been long

Since I last listened your lullaby song:
Sing, then, and unto my soul it shall seem
Womanhood’s years have been only a dream.
Clasped to your heart in a loving embrace,
With your light lashes just sweeping my face,
Never hereafter to wake or to weep;—      
Rock me to sleep, mother, – rock me to sleep!

Happy Mother's Day!!
