A Poem for Moms Everywhere

We’d be nowhere without our moms

Our life begins inside her tum…my

She feeds us food and sings us songs

She lets us know that we belong

When we feel sick she holds us tight

Sometimes we keep her up all night

As we mature she tries to help us

Too oft we insist that we can do this

We’ll never know how many prayers

She sends to God to keep us safer

We tear her heart up when we’re bad

Our hearts break too when she is sad

She loves it when we bring our kids over

The laughter they share is great to recover

As mom becomes feeble it us who now pray

Please, God, don’t leave her like this everyday

Eventually God comes and takes her soul home

A piece of our heart is missing for now

Tears of grief will fall from our eyes

God understands and heals as we cry

Dear child be thankful for the mom that you’re given

With Jesus as savior we’ll meet up in heaven

I'm a truck driver turned writer. My writing drives people to Jesus.
I love sunsets/sunrises, dark chocolate, coffee, cats and dogs (as long as their owners pick up after them) and solitude. My relationship with God through Jesus Christ is most important to me, not a religion. This writing gig is all God's idea. I only wish to bring more attention to Jesus with it.
