She struggles to regain the mastery she once knew
Her strength lies in her firm resolve
A courageous lady always
An inspiration she’s been to me
A soft voice
A gentle air
A real lady, She
Carried on for many a year
Untouched by tragedy
She took me in way back then
Cared for me as her own
She gave me love unconditionally
She made our house a home
I often wonder where I’d be
If she had not come along
To hold my hand
Soothe my cries
To love and comfort me
Yes mother dear
I’ll hold you near
Within my heart
Never to part
Today, tomorrow and Always

Written for the woman who raised me.

Thanks so much for your kind words. I hope she thinks so, as I sent this to her. She is 84 yrs. old now and recovering from a stroke and hip operation, having a rough go of it, thought she needed a little encouragement.

your words ring round for all to see, for this day in England is mothers day March 26.
Thank you for sharing the tender heart that is full of love for each one of us.

Sweetvenom--Thanks so much for your comments. I read your recent poem to your Mom. She must be very proud of you. And she is blessed to have a son who is so devoted to her.
