Frances Matney Woodard (1922 – 1991) was born in Huntington, Texas the eldest daughter of a Methodist minister. After working for the US Military during World War 2, she attended and graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. After marrying, she settled in Longview, Texas where she was very active as a Sunday school teacher, youth & children’s choir director, church secretary, choir member, songwriter, and soloist at her Church and throughout East Texas.

She was a Spirit-filled believer who loved the Lord. She was a prolific writer who dedicated her last years in this world to writing songs and poetry, many that were never distributed or published outside the family. I am very proud to share some of her writing with the world. I pray that it blesses you. — Harrison Woodard


My Mother

By Frances Matney Woodard

(1922 – 1991)

Mother is a special person

No one else can be the same

You, mother, are the only one I have

So no one else can wear your name.

You’re my mother

Special, loving, and dear

Trusting, waiting and patient

Oh, how I wish you were here!

But this day’s for you

And you deserve it

Because that’s just the way I feel about you.
