My Mother's Prayers

                                         My mother prayed for me
                                         and I felt every prayer
                                         with a humble, loving heart
                                         she placed me in God's care

                                         She never ask for riches
                                         or material things and such
                                         to her those kind of things
                                         never did matter much

                                        She only ask for prosperity
                                        and happiness without end
                                        peace for my very soul
                                        and love as my true friend

                                        She ask God to walk with me
                                        and stay close by my side
                                        and shelter me from life's storms
                                        his presence always abide

                                        She prayed so earnestly
                                        as only a mother can do
                                        with a mother's faithful heart
                                        in the only way that she knew

                                       Even when her life was at end
                                       before her final breath
                                       she ask God to comfort me
                                       then closed her eyes in death

                                      I post this today with sadness and tears.
                                      Happy Mother's Day everyone.


  1. I was also with my Mother when she passed...there was the most beautiful sunset that evening, which I hold fast too. Heartfelt words Susie...they live on in our hearts.

    Mothers are guardian angels sent to us by God to love and protect us without expecting anything in return. The sacrifices which a mother makes for her children is extraordinary.
