I would like to give my Mother a gift in the last days of her life. At this time there are no gifts that I could give that would be any where near as meaningful as my own time. I have been thinking that one of the best and most meaningful gifts, could be to sing some songs, and read some prayers and poems. My Mother has been moved to a hospital, and has very little energy to maintain her attention for long periods now, so I thought a few songs and prayers could be a way to give her some pleasure in what is a painful and uncomfortable time.
At the moment I have a number in mind including,
Garten Mother’s Lullaby
Frances of Assissi’s Canticle of the Sun
The Lord’s my shepherd.
and so I’m asking for suggestions of songs, prayers and maybe some hymns that she might enjoy, and that I can learn or find. Maybe you know of a youtube link etc where I can learn a song, or a book with a nice poem in it.
I appreciate all your suggestions.
