About This Poem

Mother

I had often failed to see the love you freely gave to me
Protecting my innocence through all that life threw at me 
Teaching me to see in myself what you always saw in me
You taught me love and grace by giving yourself completely 

Then I became the Mother blessed with children of my own
To love and cherish every day with that same love you had shown
To have a child to love and teach is a precious gift to share
Memories of your love stay close because I know you cared  

My daughter is a Mother now with five children of her own
She is busy with their lives but she always has time to phone
I know she loves each child as they are hers and mine
The biggest gift a mother can give – it is the gift of time
