Happy Mother's Day

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

God chose you, mother, before my birth
Then He sent my soul to live on earth
For nine long months our bond did form
I knew you'd protect me from all harm

I heard your laughter and your voice
I knew God had made a very wise choice
I waited patiently in that warm place
Until the day came and I saw your face

It was no wonder I was a happy baby
Because you took such good care of me
You embraced me with your arms and heart
And I knew that we would never part

You taught me how to walk and talk
You encouraged me whenever I'd balk
You taught me what was wrong and right
And kept my faith shining bright

By your example, I learned a lot
From years ago when I was only a tot
You shared your life and your love
And we were blessed by God above

We went to church where we would sing
I loved to hear the church bells ring
I learned to love God and to believe
I now thank God for blessings received

I thank God from the bottom of my heart
For making you my mother from the start
You're like an Angel filled with love
And given to me by God above

On this special day we've set aside
My heart is happy, my smile is wide
May your day be blessed and filled with cheer
I thank you, mother, for always being near

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

Beverly,

This is just exquisite but there is only one problem. Now, I have not written my Mother's Day poem yet and your mother already has hers. My mom is going to be saying all day....."That girl, I guess she has just forgotten all about me. Your lovely daughter remembers you. What is the deal with that one of mine"? He heheheeeeeeee!!!

Not really of course. Althought I do believe they MUST be friends. My mom never wanted anything for herself. She wanted everything for others. Your Mom sounds so much like mine. This is a beautiful tribute to her.........you always do such inspiring things.

BTW, Happy Mother's Day to You! God bless you today, sweetie!

Love you,
Karen

Oh Beverley, :D

This is such a precious, loving tribute to your mother and really touches the hearts of the rest of us mothers too. You have been truly blessed as no doubt your mother feels so blessed by you. Great poem with a lovely rhyming flow of words. I can feel your love for your Mom through your write. Really enjoyed reading this. May God continue to bless you, my friend.

I'm sure your mother was always proud of you Angel. And I am as sure that she loves this poem in tribute to her. Very well expressed in verse and just beautiful as you always write. Yes, let Skip make an e-card of it. Thank you so much for sending the link. God bless.
Live today as if it were your last, for tomorrow it will be your past, but live it with peace in mind, joy to find, and for God divine!

Sorry I am so late with this.....Many, many thanks to Denise, Linda, Jacqueline, Jeff, Karen, Ellen, Shirley, Steve and Jeanette for all your nice comments on my poem. I am deeply appreciative. Thank you, Jeff, for the wonderful Mother's Day song. That was so thoughtful of you. Hope each of you, who are mothers, had a terrific day and will have a year filled with many blessings from above.

May God bless all of you and hold you close to His heart.

Love You,
