Mary's Children

We Remember By the children of Mary Elizabeth Scott

Upon the rising sun and at it’s going down; We remember her. When flowers bloom and in the rebirth of spring; We remember her. In our weary moments, in need of strength; We remember her. When we are lost and sick at heart; We remember her. In times of indecision in search of discernment; We remember her. When we have joy we crave to share; We remember her. When we have dreams that become achievements; We remember her. When it is time to invoke her spirit of wisdom, responsibility, strength, consistency, generosity, compassion, practicality and appreciation; We remember her For as long as we all live, she too will live, for she is now a part of us as, We remember her.
