On Your Special Day - To Marguerite

In darkness and light, a true mother,

          you walk with us.

Amid crashing waves and on dancing beaches,

you hold us up.

Through fearsome forests and meadows blessed

          with bird-song, you guide our steps.

With frail health or robust energy, you climb

Never too busy to listen, or sit beside us in

          comfortable quiet,

All the while, leading us to Mary’s open,

waiting arms,

All the while, showing us her Son living

          within us, transforming us with his

          Presence.
