' A Day To Remember' - Poem by Linda Winchell

Never does a mother forget, that miracle of birth,
It stays within her memory,
With the last and with her first.

Nine long months of waiting,
For that bundle of joy to arrive,
Then wondering how to raise it,
While setting some of her life aside.

Yet with Gods' grace and wisdom,
That was instilled in her from the start,
She gives this little blessing of joy,
All her loving trust and heart.

Time passes quickly,
All childish things let go.
To become what you have taught them,
And everything you know.

A day to take upon themselves,
A spouse to start anew,
Starting the process over again,
Now the rest my child is up to you!

    All her loving trust and heart.''

    How very tender, , I could not have penned this any different... You have painted the world of motherhood universal, and when they marry, and have children of their own, our love grows into a new demention........ Very heartfelt and with much wisdom...

    Hi Linda. So good to get your message, and thank you for your love and good wishes. I love the truths in your poem A Day to Remember. All who read it will identify with it in one way or another. Even males! ! ! Have a read of my effort called Giving Birth. Please let me know what you think. I, like yourself, have a great love for our Creator and for the life He has bestowed upon us. Whatever our situation what a gift this life is! ! ! ! ! Let's help many more to celebrate it. From Fay. (Report) Reply
