Poem: Mother’s Love


“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” ~ Psalm 127:3


Precious you are to me,

A gift from God above,

Child, you are my treasure,

One I will always love.


The moment you were born

Was love at first sight,

Glimmering from your eyes

Was warm gentle light.


You knew me instantly,

And surely I knew you;

Connected we are forever

No matter what you do.


So hold my hand, child,

Stay ever close to me,

Trust that your mother

Loves you eternally.


Should the rain fall,

I will shelter you in my arms,

Praying that my embrace

Comforts and warms.


Should you hurt yourself

Amidst your carefree play,

Know you can run to me

Any moment, any day.


Yet remember there is One

Who loves you more than I do;

Stay close to Jesus,

For so much He loves you.


When I cannot be there,

When the distance is great,

Your connection with Jesus

Nothing can separate.


You are never alone,

He is always by your side;

He will carry you, my child,

And tenderly guide.


He loved you before creation,

Before the first day and night,

So bask always in His love,

In His warm gentle light.


Yes, precious you are to me,

So keep your eyes fixed above;

Child, you are my treasure,

One I will always love.

    I don’t have any children and both my parents are deceased, but I honor my mother by making donations to her favorite charity and by often repeating the words of wisdom she taught me.

    Have a Victorious Day!
