Momma

I heard your heart beat from within As my life was about to begin How blessed was I to call you mom Your first born I was about to become Looking back through the years You have shed many tears My disappointments, you always knew The tears I cried, you cried too You taught me courage while calming my fears Acknowledging my accomplishments with joy and cheer You are always there to plea my case Coaching in my spiritual race Sacrifices you selflessly made My lifetime, I could never repay You taught me right from wrong Through your example I learned to be strong A strong woman you had to be Overcoming circumstances others could not see You were brave and courageous through it all You stood solid and refused to fall You taught me life’s not always fair We each have our cross to bear To carry our cross and do our best To have Jesus, we are blessed Your love for Jesus, I most admire Your spiritual inspiration, my life inspired Faith, love and hope you instilled in me To become the woman I was meant to be My soul you prayed for, night and day Before the throne of God, your pleas lay Your prayers have followed me throughout my life Keeping me safe, from harm and strife Your faith never to falter or sway Teaching me, Jesus is the only way A God-fearing mother, her child is blessed Because of your prayers my soul can rest A woman of God, you stand steadfast and true No matter the fiery trials you must walk through An example of Christ you strive to be To have that example taught to me A woman, I can only hope to be Love for your children always guaranteed A woman whose faith has been tested and tried Never, will your values be compromised A virtuous woman, the title you own Your worth, valued above a precious stone Your wisdom, directs your children’s footsteps Your love cannot me measured by height nor depth My life has been blessed, my soul anew Because to God, you stood true Heaven, we will share while ages roll Momma, I love you, more than you know
