Our Mother's Love ( a poem of inspiration)

As night to come, in our beds we lay..
As night to come, in our beds we lay..
As surely as the night, followed by a sweet day...
As surely as the night, followed by a sweet day...
Bright days were our own...
Bright days were our own...
as over the years the time has flown...
as over the years the time has flown...
Now we share your love with our own...
Now we share your love with our own...
You took us to church to sing and to pray...
You took us to church to sing and to pray...



I think that I shall never hear,

A poem quite as lovely, one so dear,

As a mother's love, her arms so spread,

Who tucked us safely in our bed.


Who read to us and wiped our tears,

Hugged her children, little ones,

Who washed dishes, cooked our food,

As all about the house she runs,


Always there, when we were in need,

Planted within us, her loving seed,

Did spread all about a sweet bouquet,

Showed she cared in every way.


By our sides in both night and day,

Her most worthy image, in what we did say,

Who guided our lives, how we did play,

Took us to church, to sing and pray.


Mother, dearest, love well received,

In your sweet self, we have believed,

The years may come, then have flown,

As by your knee, we all have grown.


Now to our own children, your gifts are shared,

This Is our way, shows how much you cared,

As surely as night to have a sweet dawn,

We've captured your love, to make our own.



You've brightened our lives in every way...
You've brightened our lives in every way...

I was fortunate to have been raised by a stay-at-home mom. I think it makes all the difference in the world. I stayed home with my son until he was two, but was forced to go back to work in order to make ends meet. Then, when his dad and I divorced, I had no choice but to work outside the home. I'm truly blessed that my mom was there waiting for us when we got home from school. No daycare.

Regardless of the situation, moms are special people. Thank you for honoring them, whonu.
