For Mom's Smile Once More

September 10, 2008
By Cierra Hall, Fall City, WA

Waiting for the phone call, fingers crossed I’m praying
Praying for the phone to ring, for someone to be saying
Congratulations miss; you’ve won the grand prize
And to see the tears of joy flowing from my mother’s eyes
To present her with the prize, that she needs, that I worked for
And having her be happy and smiling once more

This is something that's been on my mind all day and it just poured out onto paper!
