A Mother's Love

A mother’s love reaches across the miles and years
It can touch a heart so strong and stretch across the sea
Her prayers can lift higher and calm the deepest fears
Uttering still, so tender yet brave throughout eternity

God grants her voice the bravest song of cheer
From cradle and after death in the music of the wind
The same sweet song she sang when she was here
A craving reminder, our most enduring friend

We hear her voice like some far beckoning hope
And smell her perfume in the fragrance of each flower
So often when the wind is blowing down some steep slope
We feel her loving arms around us with a mighty power

When God designed her he placed a heavenly crown
To shine with splendor and love straight from above
To prove that she is so worthy of and heaven bound
What more can we ask for or need than a mother’s love

  1. Happy Mother's Day to you, Susie! Your poem is beautiful. I love the image of a mother's voice being the music of the wind. So well said.

  3. Thank you Susie, this says so much about the love of our mothers. I remember when my daughter Angie was placed in my arms...even though I was just 16, I knew it was a love I had never experienced before. But thankfully I had that same wonderful feeling with each of my daughter's births and even my grandchildren. It's that powerful love that God gave women for their families. I feel that the births of my daughters were the greatest gift from God to me. When we love our children, they love us back. Blessings for a happy mother's day to you my friend. Wishing you well. xoxo, Susie
