Who Will Take Care of Mom?

Recommended Posts


Who will take dear old Mom? Who will it be?

All of us WANT her, - I'm sure you'll agree!

Let's call a meeting, - let's gather the clan,

Let's get it settled as soon as we can.


In such a big family there's certainly one

Willing to give her a place in the sun!

Strange how we thought that she'd never wear out,

But see how she walks, it's arthritis, no doubt,


Her eyesight is faded, her memory's dim,

She's apt to insist on the silliest whim,

When people get older they become such a care!

She must have a home, but the question is where?


Remember the days when she used to be spry?

Baked us cookies and made us pies?

Helped us with lessons and tended our seams,

Kissed away troubles and mended our dreams?


Our wonderful Mother ! We all love her so!

Isn't it dreadful she's no place to go?

One little corner is all she would need,

A shoulder to cry on, her Bible to read,


A chair by the window with sun coming through,

Some pretty spring flowers still covered with dew,

Who'll warm her with love so she won't mind the cold?

Oh, who will take Mom now that she's old?


What? Nobody wants her? Oh, yes, there is ONE

Willing to give her a place in the sun,

Where she won't have to worry or wonder or doubt,

And she won't be OUR problem to bother about,


Pretty soon now, *** will give her a bed,

But who'll dry our tears when Mother is dead?



Originally a tribute to Grandmother, but with Mom and Dad living longer, one could very well exchange either / or for Grandma. From experience, I know the struggles (and joys) of caring for an aged parent. No easy task, but never far from thought was the fact that one day, it very well may be me having to depend on one of my children for even the simplest daily needs.
