Today my dad came to see me in the hospital.  (see my other blog)
He brought a lovely poem he had written this week for me.
It was so beautiful that I wanted to share with my blog friends.
Thanks again Dad!  I feel so lucky to have received this gift!
Mother Loves You, Ben
It would take ten thousand kisses
Just to show how much she misses
You all the days you are gone

It would take ten thousand days
Just to tell you of all the ways
She wants to touch you again

It would be ten thousand blessings                              
Just to feel her hands caressing                              
Your angel face one more time

And it could take ten thousand years
Just to count up all of her tears
That she has cried just for you

She would climb ten thousand stairs
She would say ten thousand prayers
To hold your hands once again

Yes, she would walk ten thousand miles
Just to embrace you for awhile
And feel you breathing on her

It could take ten thousand wishes
Just to give you all the kisses
She has saved up just for you

She would wait ten thousand years
She would cry ten thousand tears
She would climb ten thousand stairs
She would say ten thousand prayers
Just to hold you again
          Just to see you again
          Just to love you again
