The following words seem lame as I try to explain a mother’s love. Because a new mother sets many goals that she may never accomplish, I want you to know that sometimes I was blind and many times I failed. But through the rain and the pain, the love always won year by year. Money could buy a lot of gold and silver, but it could never buy a mother’s love.
As I bring years of memories to mind, you know only a mother would understand and hold all memories dear. I can see you all as you changed with every through the seasons of your lives. A mother has so many roles to play through the years, and it is only now that I realize the sacrifices and love my mother made for me. I love you, my children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren! I hope you enjoy this Valentine’s Day!
Love has touched my soul, my child
Forever wishing my arms could hold your smile.
Words seem much too shallow to describe
Feelings of compassion, joy, tears, and pride
That only you can bring, my child.
Yet it is wise as you walk away
To let my tears, hold still and stay
Goodbye, my child.
You were mine only for a little while.
Conflict soars within me, hoping for you
A perfect life, yet knowing inside
The heartaches and disappointments from
Which love nor life can hide.
Wisdom is aging, and often knowledge brings pain.
Let LOVE be your sunshine after the rain.
My prayer is your LOVE will conquer all,
The path of showers your life may call.
