We all Pitched In by Lisa Tomey

 

 

We all pitched in for brother’s care
Mother was the lead
We all learned what it means to share

All her words were spoken fair
Teaching us this need
We all pitched in for brother’s care

Morning brought my elder brothers
Cooking him his cream of wheat
We all learned what it means to share

Baby bottles were my fare
Mother taught me how to feed
We all pitched in for brother’s care

Mom was always stationed where
Guidance came to be a need
We all learned what it means to share

Mom made certain to be there
As we proceeded to meet needs
We all pitched in for brother’s care
We all learned what it means to share
