Mother's Day Poem

We often ask, why me dear Lord?

Who am I to receive such a reward?

The child you've given is a blessing from above

Sent down from heaven to be showered with love

I am weak, sometimes scared, to make a mistake

I press on with the chose for me to partake

Who am I to receive such a reward?

To raise a child of my own accord

Each step I take I hope is the right direction

As my child follows behind with pure innocent affection

I am a mother, who will offer her lifelong love and protection

Who am I to receive such a reward?

I am a mother...trusted with a life to mold

Until their gifts begin to unfold

Then I will take a step back and behold

My child has become the person I helped to shape

Who am I to receive such a reward?

I am a mother who was given a gift so rare...a life to raise, guide and share

I am a mother........

Very nice and written with great emotion. I expected a picture of your child at the bottom but that's ok. I wrote an acrostic poem for my Mother last Mother's Day if you might want to read it. I'll check back laterand see if it's OK to post the link here.

I actually have three children and three step-children and each one is such a blessing in my life. I wrote the poem in honor of each individual child. I will definitely post a picture. I would love to read your poem. Thanks for the comment.
