A Mother's Love:

When I sit down to write,

I can't think what to say,

How do you put into words,

The love a mother gives everyday?


You sacrificed yourself,

To raise us at home,

Not sending us to daycare,

To have a life of your own.

Being there for us,

Every step of the way,

From our first cries,

To teaching us how to pray.


You were always involved,

Love was the main tool,

Sports, scouts, and band,

Even room mother in school.

There's no way to repay,

All the love you've shown,

All we have is us, here now,

Your children... all grown.


I'm sure my brothers join me,

In what I have to say,

We couldn't ask for a better mom,

We thank God for you every day.

So this day is special,

This day's words ring true,

Today, we want you to know,

How much we love you.

As high as the stars above,

As deep as the ocean blue,

No form of man's measurement,

Could describe the love we have for you.


What's Your Opinion:

Do you believe mother's are children's most important teacher and roll model?

      I had a mom that was very concerned about my spiritual welfare. I knew how to please her and I knew what would break her heart. I tried so hard not to break her heart because I loved her. She was proud of me and thought I was smart, and had great promise. She believed that until I broke her heart and decided to follow Jesus instead of her idea of what a "true religion" was. I tried to discuss things with her but she would rather think me dead than at odds with "her God." So I was left without a mom for most of my life. Now I don't know if my mom is alive or dead. I don't know for sure where she lives or any way to contact her. This is how she and my father wish it to be. Jesus said that any who lost Mother, Father, Sisters, or Brothers, on account of Him or His kingdom would receive many "replacements" now, and and after- eternal life. I thank Him for that. I am not aware of many people who have been willing to be a mom to me. But I have a great replacement Dad and Brother and Sister. It is a mom that continues to ache a bit. I always loved my mom and continue to love her. I know the Lord has given me a great measure of peace about her but I know that there is no real replacement for the woman who carried me. Thank you for the poem. Voted up and beautiful. Bob.

      Mothers do so much more than we realize. Many times we do not understand until we have kids of our own. Thank God for the mothers who are raising their children correctly.

      You're mother sounds just like mine. She did as many things with her children as she could and supported us in all our activities. You're poem is beautiful!
