Poetry for Mother's Day

Poetry for Mother's Day


If I could give you diamonds for each tear you cried for me.

if I could five you sapphires for each truth you've helped me see.

If I could give you rubies for the heartache that you've known

If I could give you pearls for the wisdom that you've shown.

Then you'll have a treasure, mother, that would mount up to the skies

That would almost match the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes.

But I have no pearls, no diamonds, As I'm sure you're well aware

So I'll give you gifts more precious My devotion, love and care.

For all the times you gently picked me up, When I fell down,

For all the times you tied my shoes And tucked me into bed,

Or needed something But put me first instead.

For everything we shared, The dreams, the laughter,

And the tears, I love you with a "Special Love" That deepens every year.

"While we honor all our mothers with words of love and praise.

While we tell about their goodness and their kind and loving ways.

We should also think of Grandma, she's a mother too, you see....

For she mothered my dear mother as my mother mothers me."
