in Mother Poems
A mother is a special gift
From our Father in heaven above.
She holds, consoles; spirits she lifts,
She gives to her children enduring love.
Before I met you, I was dead - now I live.
My heart could not receive love, nor could it give -
The moment I met you I was forever changed,
I agree with you wholeheartedly Nan. I have two beautiful daughters with totally different personalities. I had them early in life and people often mistake them for my sisters. We laugh and joke around but they know when I am serious. I thank God for giving me these two amazing treasures. And I am a grandmother! Why that is the very best gift of all!! There's absolutely nothing like it in this world!
This is a wonderful sentimental poem. It depicts a loving relationship between father and child. My father came into my life as an adult and unfortunately we did not get to make many memories. I am however glad for the time we had. I'm sure your stanzas have many others reflecting on precious moments spent with dad!
Pat, I think this poem is fabulous as all of your poems I have read. I am a forever fan and friend. Love ya!
