Gentle Mother

Post by Candlelight.kk on 26th May 2017, 23:13

Jan 27, 2008

By the side of a cool crystal fountain
There stands a lonely churchyard closely by
There's a gravestone decorated with primroses
In the memory of a loved one passed away

Shall I ne'er see you more gentle mother
In the fields where the wild flowers grow
Gathering flowers as they grew amongst the wild woods
And I cherish twas no trouble unto you.

Some children take a liking to their parents
While some others fill their mother's hearts with pain
But some day they will be sorry for their blindness
When crying will not take her back again

Shall I ne'er see you more gentle mother
In the fields where the wild flowers grow
I am sorry for that loss I can't recover
'Neath yon willow lies my gentle mother's love.

Beautiful. Tears are flowing for my Mum although it's almost 36 years since she passed.
For me, this world has never been the same since that day.

Banish the darkness of ignorance. Encourage the light of knowledge.

Same here, Feather, only 21 years since I lost my mother.

I had this song on an LP (vinyl for those that can remember) on a collection of similar beautiful songs by Big Tom (& the Mainliners, a singer very popular in Ireland amongst the Country n Western set. He was one of my favourites of the Showbands in Ireland and I was very much into the showband dances scene. "Big Tom" (named because of his gentle giant stance) coming from the same county as my father, sang a lot of the songs that I could relate to. 'Gentle Mother' my absolute favourite, reached number one in the charts in Ireland and stayed there for a long time, and I think I probably drove everyone mad with playing it over and over again.
I remember one day my mother saying to me "the words of that song are so very true, you'll think of me and remember me saying this after I'm gone".

"A Mother's Love's A Blessing"

A mother's love's a blessing
No matter where you roam
Keep her while she's living
You'll miss her when she's gone.

Love her as in childhood
Though feeble, old and gray
For you'll never miss your mother's love
Till she's buried beneath the clay.

And as the years go onwards
I'll settle down in life
I'll find a nice young Irish girl
And make her my sweet wife.

And as the kids grow older
And climb around my knee
I'll teach them the very same lesson
That my mother once taught to me.

A mother's love's a blessing
No matter where you roam
Keep her while she's living
You'll miss her when she's gone.

Love her as in childhood
Though feeble, old and gray
For you'll never miss your mother's love
Till she's buried beneath the clay

Mother Macree

There's a spot in me heart which no other may own,
There's a depth in me soul never sounded or known;
There's a place in my mem'ry, my life that you fill,
No other can take it, no one ever will.

Sure I love the dear silver that shines in your hair,
And the brow that's all furrowed, and wrinkled with care.
I kiss the dear fingers, so toil-worn for me.
O, God bless you and keep you, Mother Macree!

Ev'ry sorrow or care in the dear days gone by,
Was made bright by the light of the smile in your eye;
Like a candle that's set in a window at night
Your fond love has cheered me, and guided me right.
