She came tonight as I sat alone..
The girl I used to be ....
And she gazed at me with her earnest eye
And questioned reproachfully:

Have you forgotten the many plans
And hopes I had for you?
The great career, the splendid fame,
all the wonderful things to do?

Where is the mansion of stately height
With all its gardens rare?
The silken robes that I dreamed for you
And the jewels in your hair?

And as she spoke, I was very sad
For I wanted her pleased with me...
This slender girl from the shadowy past
The girl that I used to be.

So gently rising, I took her hand
And guided her up the stairs
Where peacefully sleeping, my babies lay
Innocent, sweet, and fair.

And I told her that these are my only gems,
And precious they are to me;
That silken robes is my motherhood
Of costly simplicity.

And my mansion of stately height is love,
And the only career I know
Is serving each day in these sheltered walls
For the dear ones who come and go.

And as I spoke to my shadowy guest,
She smiled through her tears at me.
And I saw the woman that I am now
Pleased the girl I used to be.

Daniel 3:29 Iată acum porunca pe care o dau: Orice om din orice popor, neam sau limbă ar fi, care va vorbi rău de Dumnezeul lui Şadrac, Meşac şi Abed-Nego va fi făcut bucăţi şi casa lui va fi prefăcută într-un morman de murdării, pentru că nu este niciun alt dumnezeu care să poată izbăvi ca El.”
