Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mom’s out there!

I’m more of a songwriter than a poet, but I thought I’d take a stab at writing a poem for Sarah this Mother’s Day. I thought some of you might enjoy it as well.

 

Our children were born

Into safety and warmth

Placed in the cradle

Of your loving arms

 

Hungry mouths fed

Storybooks read

Clothes pulled and placed

over little arms and legs

 

Diapers are changed

Bottoms are bathed

When Daddy is helping

They still call your name

 

All through the night

We answer their cries

But only your voice

Seems to make it alright

 

As morning light breaks

They run to kiss your face

When you feel worn out

We see beauty and strength

 

Months turn to years

And soon there’ll be tears

‘Cause our children won’t need you

To always be there

 

And when they leave home

We will grow old

‘Til, like children ourselves

Still in love, we will go


Happy Mother’s Day weekend Sarah!

Our hearts are filled with love and gratitude for you,

Matthew, Emmy, Claire, and Bowen
