My Mother

God above has given us this special gift.
A mother who keeps us from going a drift.

The sound of her voice can take away our fears.
A mother is also the one that hears our tears.

She seems to have that gift to calm and heal.
A mother really does know how you feel.

Sometimes it is hard to hold on to life’s rope.
A mother teaches you how to cope.

She tells you to get on your knees every day.
A mother teaches you how to pray.

Her words are with us when we are apart.
A mother loves with a tender heart.

I hold you dear and you have that heavenly touch.
I just want you to know I love you very much.

Edward J. Ebbs - Mother's Day, 2004
