"The Price of Freedom" A ghostly image of a soldier stood in the back ground, as a mother with a babe in her arms stood by a grave site. She lowly whispered, "Father this is your son. Son this is your father. He gave his life so that others might live." "Deep Inside" When I first learned of my pregnancy I burst with pride, But then there was a pain deep inside. The doctor informed me the pregnancy had ended, I felt my heart could never be mended. The passage of time has helped the pain subside. But time to time I shed a tear deep inside. This child lives in my heart, I must confide deep inside. "My Mother's Gentle Hands" My Mother used to comb my long hair. When she hit a tangle I would cry out in pain. She would place her gentle hands upon my head and whisper, "I'm sorry darling but you must endure the pain so that your hair will be shiny and beautiful." When my life hits a tangle I long for my mother's gentle hands to ease the pain.
