Mothers Day Poems
A Heart Just like Mom
I May not pray often, and I may not pray enough
but when I do, this is all I ask of you..
God please give me a heart just like hers
She loves unconditionally, no matter what, no matter who..
God give me courage to be like her
She's very brave, she makes me unafraid..
God give me wisdom just like hers
She knows everything, big and small, she's there to help through it
God give me strength just like hers
She's been knocked down, yet she stands strong for another round..
God give me beauty just like hers
When she smiles it gives me that feeling that everything will be okay,
and all my problems disappear for awhile....
God give me generosity just like hers
She helps the helpless, she never thinks of herself and she's so
God- someday, if I'm at least half the mom she was to me, I'll know
that you were listening On the day that I prayed.

"Happy Mother's Day" means more
Than have a happy day.
Within those words lie lots of things
We never get to say.
It means I love you first of all,
Then thanks for all you do.
It means you mean a lot to me,
And that I honor you.
But most of all, I guess it means
That I am thinking of
Your happiness on this, your day,
With pleasure and with love
I see you nowâ€¦
smaller, more fragile,
balancing yourself when you walk
with the wind at your back,
unkind to the wisp of strength
that still clings to your fervent spirit.
I marvel at you every day;
the little things you remember,
the others you forget.
You're content to read grocery ads
find an occasional Western on television,
be treated to a Sunday afternoon lunch,
be remembered on Mother's Day.
I remember when you wanted more,
required meatier tasks to occupy your mind,
found strength in doing, doing, doing.
We repeat ourselves to you now,
explaining again, those things
you cannot deem as important
a mind crowded
with so many poignant memories.
I pray for patience,
seeing myself in you,
in say, another 20 years.
You walk ahead of me,
striving to maintain your independence.
I trail behind,
unbeknownst to you,
lest you might find a need for me.
I watch you, little by little,
slipping away from me.
edging closer to your own
idea of Heaven,
that grander piece of Paradise
that holds the promise of better things to come.
I store the memories of you every day,
struggling to hold on to the vibrance
that you once were,
grasping, with both my hands,
what little bit of life that remains inside of you.
I fear to lose you,
and yet I have, already,
piece by piece,
until a little more of you
is taken from the heart of me.
You walk ahead, I know,
the thin, white hair, unruly now,
the back since bowed,
the skin, an ashen shroud,
that whispers of your fortitude.
And there, in the cruel reality of senility,
I see intermittent flashesâ€¦
of the blue eyes that captured untold hearts,
that tempestuous hair that fell flirtingly
across your cheek
when you laughed,
the Dresden complexion
that glowed with youthful
expectation at the mere prospect of Life,
and I remember you,
the way you were,
the way you will always be
I rememberâ€¦ beauty.
--For my mother,
To My Wonderful Wife Tezz
How do I begin to tell you how lucky I am
to have you in my life?
I'll start by saying what a gift you gave me
the day you became my wife.
You're my best friend in the good times
and my rock in times of sorrow.
You're the reason for sweet yesterdays
and my promise for tomorrow.
I never thought I could feel this loved
until you became my wife.
You made this year and every year
the best one of my life.
A cold morning
A cold morning it was
when mama bird left her nest,
and left her tweeties with warmth and love,
for the promise that she'll be back.
Oh tweeties cried,
for mama bird will leave,
all they know is she'll go so far,
to earn a living for them to survive.
One tweetie made a plea
that touches mama's heart,
"Mom, don't go...you are my life!"
Mama bird burst into tears,
and spread her wings unto her.
Tweetie felt mama's kindness,
love and care.
Still she knows that mama's doing this
to lend thier burdens,
to make them breath.
So tweeties will wake up
in the morning,
with worms nigh
and relish every moment
with full tummies and fly high!
Lace Paulyn Rosaroso
A halo that reflects a life of
wisdom, kindness, and caring.
Eyes that sparkle with pride
and show how much she believes in you.
Shoulders that have been slept on
and wept on and
carried a world or two.
Arms that never run out of hugs.
Hands that know
just when to hold on
and when to let go.
A mind filled with amazing things,
from fairy tales to family tails
and long-ago stories of you.
A smile that can jump right into your heart
and warm you faster than hot chocolate.
A heart of gold
that holds more love
than you can possibly imagine.
