All Flowers Remind Me of You!

There is a song that I was taught in Primary and is still sung today around Mother's Day. This song describes the love I have for my mother. Some of my favorite memories with my mother revolve around flowers. Whether we are planting them together, arranging them, walking among them, or admiring them, these are tender moments with my mother that I cherish. I can't sing this song without getting choked up. There aren't many words to this song, but somehow, the picture they draw from my heart is enough. I Love You Mom!

I Often Go Walking

I often go walking in meadows of clover,
And I gather armfuls of blossoms of blue.
I gather the blossoms the whole meadow over,
Dear Mother, all flowers remind me of you.

Oh Mother, I give you my love with each flower
To give forth sweet fragrance a whole lifetime through
For if I love blossoms and meadows and walking,
I learn how to love them, dear Mother, from you.
--Phyllis Luch
