As mother’s Day approaches, bow your head and say a prayer
Thank God above for everything, your loving Mother shared.
When you were just a tiny one, and cried out in the night
Mom was first to hear your plea, and rushed to calm yout fright.

It seems she never rested, ’til she knew that you were safe.
Her love for you was strong, and you could always see her face.
As you grew and explored your world, she was there to break your fall.
She let you try, and try again, ’til you were standing tall.

And then on into adulthood, her love grew stronger still.
She let you go to stand alone, but was always near to help.
Her love for you was always first, never thinking of herself.
May God bless Mothers everywhere, and give them added strength.
