Second World War: Mom's Contribution to the War Effort

This poem talks about one mother's bravery during the second World War

| Good Old Days

The following poem is about one young mother's contribution to the war effort. It was written by her daughter.


My mom was a true mother
and always a friend.
We spent many hours talking
and walking hand-in-hand.

She loved all her children,
seven are alive.
One baby went to heaven;
he prays in the sky.

Mom had six children
through the second World War,
the bombs were falling
and we were small.

She was all alone with six little kids,
only God saw her weeping
as he watched in her sleep.
Soon the War was over

and spring came to our land.
My father and brother came home again.
It was Palm Sunday
and Easter they returned.
