A Prayer For Mother

I know I could never repay her for what she's given me. For she's given me a treasure worth more than gold.  I will die a thousand times if something tragic were to happen to her. A Prayer For Mother, Always And Forever.

Protect her day by day When enemies do surround In fervent prayer to God I pray To keep her safe and sound. For she's given me a perfect gift A gift of love and life complete Her sunken spirit may you lift To thrones above where seraphs meet. As once I weaned upon her breast Fearless, safe and warm I lay So Lord I plead, not more not less Chase far her troubles away. But if by time my soul expire That my life had met its doom Lord in your arms I do aspire To love her beyond the tomb!

    Could I say I envy you? Your mother must be wonderful. This is a sign of a great family. Not all of us have experienced this. So, in this respect you are fortunate. Also, you have a noble soul. Lovely.

    A beautiful prayer, a beautiful tribute to an amazing person in your life...the lines speak so eloquently of your love for her...yes...Mothers are deserving of praise. It's been 14 years since I lost my mother due to illness...I yet think of her and cry...She has made me who I am today! Thank you for sharing!
