My Father Gave Her To Me


Published by Family Friend Poems September 2006 with permission of the Author.

My father gave her to me, as a gift from God above,
Who would know a step-mother,
is someone you can really love?
I shall call her mother,
the name that suits her best;
Although my veins are not of her blood,
she surpassed all the rest.
She loves and understands me,
and of course is my best friend,
She is soft, and kind, and loving,
until our journey here shall come to an end.
The Lord gave her to me,
she's my comfort zone.
The Lord knows every need of his children,
and that I needed to be in taught in a new tone.
Quite a few heartaches for both my new mom and me,
We were put together for a reason,
even if we cannot see.
We had both lost someone dear to us,
and with God's sweet guiding kiss,
He put together a family,
so we could love the ones that together we missed.
Mother, I am sorry that you suffered all the strife in your life,
but God had a plan for me and you,
and made you my father's wife.
I think about a little girl who's mother's love she would have missed,
And I feel the tears she felt,
when it was her brow you kissed.
I cannot say enough for all the times you cared.
Thank you for the tender moments
that together we can now share.
My mother she will be, forever and ever again,
she's my shining Angel and most of all, forever my friend.

I am a new step mom (I hate that word) to a 15 month babygirl. She was conceived when my fiance and I took a break. I forgave him and was so excited about the new baby. The mother was young and bitter and kept her away for almost 9 months. Unfortunately, the mother overdosed and passed away. We went and got babygirl and it was like she remembered us. I love her to life and she already started calling me Mum. I'm not sure if I should continue to let her call me Mum or correct her.

I write poetry myself, but when I read this poem I could not have put in words better than the way this point was written and the way that it made me feel. My stepmom means the world to me. We lost my father and a few years later we lost my brother, so we have had our share of losses and that brought us together more. I love her as if she had me herself.

When I read this I was crying it really made me very sad. It made me realize how much my step mother means to me and that she is my mother even though she never gave birth to me and we don't share the same blood...I LOVE HER SO MUCH and no one will change that she's the best mom ever she means the world to me......

I wrote this poem one night before I had to give a speech at a mother daughter banquet at my church I was having problems coming up with a speech and instead came out with this, I devote it totally to my mom.

Following a very acrimonious divorce, God blessed me with a woman who is giving me and the little one so much love. The poem says it perfectly.
