Forever a Mother

When my grown daughter needed her mom last, I was incredibly thankful I could be here for her. It got me thinking…

Forever we need

Our mother’s love

Forever we need

Her touch

Forever we need

Our mother’s words

Saying she loves us much.

Forever we need

A tender look

Forever we need

Her care

Forever we need

A gentle voice

Saying she’s always there.

Forever she’ll wipe

Our flowing tears

Forever she’ll calm

Our soul

Forever her words

Will guide our way

Helping to make us whole.

Forever her songs

Will cheer our heart

Forever the words

Ring true

Forever her laugh

Will lift us up

Whenever we’re feeling blue.

But when forever

Is too much time

And Mother cannot

Be near

Our Heav’nly Father

Is always close

To offer a list’ning ear.

God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5 NIV).

Why not write a poem for your child? Even if you don’t consider yourself a writer, just pour out your heart. It will be something you and your little one can treasure – even after he or she is all grown up.
