My Mother's Love
My mother’s voice, the power of her teachings,
Live in my soul and guide me still today.
Her caring ways, her timeless words of wisdom
Come forth to help me through each day.
In each challenge, each choice,
Above the world’s noise, I hear my mother’s voice.
My mother’s faith, her prayers of earnest pleading,
Turned me to God in moments of despair.
Her calm assurance of His tender caring
Taught me to turn to Him in prayer.
Through my darkest of days I reach to feel His grace.
Such was my mother’s faith.
My mother’s hands that lifted and protected,
Those loving hands that soothed my fevered brow
Were as a shield from every earthly trial,
And still, the memory helps me now.
And my heart is aware, the strength that I now share
Came from my mother’s hands.
My mother’s voice will live in me forever.
A steady anchor for my reaching soul,
As generations climb the path together to sweet eternities untold.
My mother’s love, the essence of her being,
Flows in and through me every waking hour.
A quiet strength grew from her constant caring,
A legacy of saving power.
By her words and her touch she strengthened me so much.
I felt my mother’s love.
