Mom, you are more than just a mother’s day mother

Mom, you are more than just a mother’s day mother,
you are the one that really do understand
all of the things that goes on in a child’s heart
as you were a child too
with questions without any answers.

Mom, you do give more than just yourself.
You give love that surpasses any understanding
as you had a mother giving you love
and a person that anchored you to God.

You do sometimes stand back
when we do fall
but are the net that catches us
on the wings of your prayers
when we are alone.

Mom, sometimes you do not have words
to comfort us
but you have got arms
that holds us dear to your heart.

Today I want to thank you
for the wonderful grandmother that you are
and the mother that you are
and the wife and companion to our dad.

Mom, in words I do fall short
and I want to go to the wise men of the bible
like Solomon and the psalmist David
to be able to write something wise
and beautiful about you

but I can only think of the words of Jesus
to love one another
as the first commandment.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
