An Eagle Mom's Poem
It's every mother's dream to see,
her son grow tall and strong.
To teach him what is right to be,
to keep him from the wrong.
Mom so loves that little boy,
and uses all the skills at her employ.
She teaches him the things she can,
and hopes that he'll become a man.
He learns that words can hurt or heal,
that words can change the way we feel.
He learns that truth is right and good,
to treat his fellow man the way he should.
He learns that where there's greatest freedom in this world,
there also stands his Nation's flag unfurled.
He learns to live by faith and love,
to always trust in God above.
The years have passed and in their wake,
a taller straighter lad there stands.
And mother's pride is great indeed,
her little boy is now a man...
An Eagle Scout.
