Our Father created to utmost perfection
a creature unlike any other,
a masterpiece I’m sure you’ll agree
and he simply called it "Mother."

The first thing you saw was her smiling Face,
felt the beat of her Heart, her tender touch,
the sound of her voice that gave you peace,
when She told you , She loved you so much.

An ocean of tears she cried for you,
she guided each single step of your feet,
no sacrifice was ever too much
she was always there,in time of need.

Much too fast! Time passes on
let her know often you’re near,
a single Flower, a loving word
is all she needs to know you care.

When someday her hair turns to silver,
her Hands without strength, her smiles are few,
it is the result of a lifetime she spent
loving and caring for you.

No earthly treasure can ever replace
Gods Masterpiece called ,"Mother"!
and when She must part from you one day
pray! Her path leads back to the Father.
