Poem: Mother’s Day

Revisited in the spirit of the holiday……(I wrote this for my mom in ’02)

Lord, we pray,
Grant us what she has…
An ounce of her faith to move mountains
A sliver of her strength to lift tons
A drop of her courage to face the darkest times
Her determination to get it done
Her nurturing love and encouragement
To be ourselves, to do our best
We our ourselves to her
We rise up and call her blessed
