A Mother's Love Poem by Helen Steiner Rice

A Mother's Love

Rating: 5.0


A Mother's love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendoured miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.

Happy Heavenly Birthday, Ruby Cottingham. I love you more than you will ever know. I cannot believe that you will be 100 years old today. I know we will all be together soon. Thank you Mom for being my everything! ??
