A Mother’s Love

As we approach Mothering Sunday, here’s a poem that feels right…including for those, like me, who have lost their mothers.

My Mother kept a garden,a garden of the heart,

She planted all the good things

that gave my life it’s start.

She turned me to the sunshine

and encouraged me to dream,

Fostering and nurturing

the seeds of self-esteem…

And when the winds and rain came,

she protected me enough

But not too much because she knew

I’d need to stand up strong and tough.

Her constant good example

always taught me right from wrong

Markers for my pathway

that will last a lifetime long.

I am my Mother’s garden.

I am her legacy

And I hope today she feels the love

reflected back from me.
