You'll Miss Mother, when She's Gone.
Copyright, 1884, by T. B. Kelley.

The smiles that made your life so bright
In childhood's fair and sunny day.
May lose their sweet and joyous light
Ere many years have flown away;
Her fond caress, her words so dear,
That greeted you each night and morn.
In vain soon you will seek them here­You'll miss your mother when she's gone.

oh! watch o'er her with tender care,
With kindness all her days adorn;
No other love is half so dear­You'll miss your mother when she's gone.

Oh! shield her with your kindest love.
And never slight her on life's way-
For like an angel from above,
She shielded you in childhood's day;
Tho' other joys may claim you now,
oh! let her not in sorrow mourn.
But smooth the wrinkles from her brow­You'll miss your mother when she's gone.-Chorus.

She watch'd above your cradle bed,
And taught you childhood's little prayer;
Oh! never from her side be led,
In age she needs your loving care;
But one sweet mother heaven gives,
And soon fr¯m earth she may be borne-
Protect and love her while she lives­You'll miss your mother when she's gone.-Chorus.
