Happy Mothers Day


A single mother working two jobs was you
No one in this world could stand a chance to do what you do
You worked hard to put food on our plate
Showed up to every school game not once were you late
I never heard you complain or showed regret
And a woman of your standards I have not yet met
You knew exactly what to do when things went wrong
With your famous saying 'when things don't kill you they only makes you strong'
And you was right because you taught us how to be strong as you
How to stand for what we believe in and how to make the Lord apart of everything we do
And moma I know that we don't always say thank you for all the little things you do
So mom thank you and know that we all truly truly love you and not just because we have too
So Happy Mothers Day to you mother, I couldn't imagine saying it another way
Because there a million and one mother out there but my mother deserves to treated special on this holiday.
Happy Mothers Day to you and I wish you enjoy many more
(And I'm praying that this mothers day is better than the one before)

    Everytime you say I love you you are saying thank you for everything you have done for me. She appreciates those 3 lovely words more than she does physical presents. The present of love is never ending, and shows just how much you really appreciate everything she has done, does, and will do for you. A 10+++++ and thank you for sharing this very lovely and endearing poem.

    Love & hugs,

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
