A Mother's Love

With Mothers' Day fast approaching, I would like to share a poem I wrote for my mother a few years ago. When God made mothers, He made us strong and wise because He knew we would carry the family through. I read somewhere that "the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world." God made us special so here is a tribute to all moms everywhere.

A Mother's Love

A mother's love is a gift from God
A wondrous blessing to behold.
A mother's love is a precious thing
Worth far more than diamonds and gold.

God gave her eyes that sparkle like jewels
And a voice soft as a lullaby.
He gave her the gentle touch of an angel
To wipe the tears from our eyes.

He endowed her with the wisdom of Solomon
To help us along life's rocky way.
He gave her the strength of Samson
To endure each and every day.

So thank God each day for your mother's love
A love so wonderful and pure.
This special blessing is yours forever
Of this you can be sure.
