Pin Curls

Happy Birthday Mom
Mother
The light, the spell-word of the heart,
Our guiding star in weal or woe,
Our talisman—our earthly chart—
That sweetest name that earth can know.

We breathed it first with lisping tongue
When cradled in her arms we lay;
Fond memories round that name are hung
That will not, cannot pass away.

We breathed it then, we breathe it still
More dear than sister, friend, or brother,
The gentle power, the magic thrill,
Awakened at the name of mother.
by Fanny J. Crosby
