The Watcher By Margaret Widdemer
She always leaned to watch for us Anxious if we were late, In the winter by the window, In the summer by the gate. And though we mocked her tenderly Who had such foolish care, The long way home would seem more safe, Because she waited there. Her thought were all so full of us, She never could forget, And so I think that where she is She must be watching yet. Waiting 'til we come home to her Anxious if we are late Watching from Heaven's window Leaning from Heaven's gate.
