Dear sweet Mother, dressed in white.
When illness befalls me…
An angel in the middle of the night.
Always there to lend an ear,
Mother’s love, never any doubt.
Always there to catch your tears…
Endless love, eternal love-
That’s what Mothering is all about.
One who’s here both night and day,
One who protects with all her might.
One who takes the world’s cares away,
One who loves with no end in sight.
Never letting go, always holding on.
Mother, dear mother, never fails.
Until our fleeting time on Earth is gone,
Love from Mother always prevails.
Even in the Afterlife, a love so strong;
Mother and Child…
An unbreakable bond.
We all need comfort and love now and then…
Who better than Mother, your forever friend.
Giving advice filled with loving care,
Brimming with hope for you to reach your dreams.
Always there to share any burden you must bear.
A Mother’s love is limitless, larger than life, or so it would seem.
Give Thanks if you are able.
There are many of us who may not.
A comfort like a Mother’s love, there is none that compare.
No matter how infinite the search, or how passionately it is sought;
A Mother’s love is a forever love- She is the one who will always be there.
There will be stumbling blocks for Mother and child along the way.
We walk through this life together, we have each other…
It will work out, have faith that it will all be ok.
No matter the stumble, no matter the day…
No one can love you quite like your Mother.
A Mother’s love- Always There…
Willing to sacrifice, to give her all.
In this life together, this time we’ll share,
Don’t forget to speak kindly!
Make sure your words aren’t sharp.
For words can comfort or harm-
Sometimes they can pierce the heart.
Both Mother and child are here…
To love, to help, to heal and to give.
When you shape your child each day, do you show love or fear?
Is it a beautiful and loving life you choose to live?
On this Mother’s day- On every day…
Make sure flowers of love are your choice of seeds-
For it is love that creates more love,
And that is exactly more of what this old world really needs.
This poem was written as a remembrance for my Mother, Sherry, which means cherished, who crossed over into the next life in 2010. She was our forever friend, our support, our champion and cheerleader. No one can comfort and heal a broken heart like Mom. For this Mother’s Day, make sure you give thanks for the tireless and endless support moms around the world give their children, and their families. Some say money makes the world go round- I say you’re wrong. I say it’s Mom. Give Thanks today, and every day…
Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful Mom’s out there!!! Thank you for all you do. Your support is priceless…Just like YOU!
