Poems for Mothers #1: Home
You were there when we took our first steps and went unsteadily across the floor. You pushed and prodded: encouraged, and guided until our steps took us out the door…
You worry now, “Are they OK?” Is there more you could have done? As we walk the paths of our unknown You wonder, “Where have my children gone?”
Where we are is where you have led us, with the special love you showed us away, to believe in ourselves and the decisions we make, Taking on the challenge of life day-to-day.
And where we go you can be sure, in spirit, you shall never be alone. For where you are is what matters most to us, because to us that will always be home…

Poems for Mothers #2: Garden
My Mother kept a garden, A garden of the heart. She planted all the good things That gave my life its start.
She turned me into the sunshine and encouraged me to dream, Fostering and nurturing The seeds of self-esteem…
And when the winds and rain came, she protected me enough but not too much, because she knew I’d need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example Always taught me right from wrong Markers for my pathway will last a lifetime long.
I am my Mother’s garden. I am her legacy, and I hope today she feels the love Reflected from me.

Poems for Mothers #3: Devotion
A Mother’s love is something That no one can explain, it is made of deep devotion and sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish, and enduring, come what may for nothing 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…

Poems for Mothers #4: Haven
Her love is like an island in life’s ocean, vast. A peaceful, quiet shelter from the wind, the rain, the tide.
‘Tis bound on the north by Hope, By Patience on the West, By tender Counsel on the South, And on the East by Rest.
Above it like a beacon light Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer; And thro’ the changing scenes of life, I find a haven there.
