A Mother's Love

A Mother's Love

A mother’s heart beat soothes her babe.
Cuddling him close, she sings and prays.
She gently strokes his feverish brow;
responding to cries, no matter what hour.

A mother’s kiss makes everything better
but she adds a bandage just for good measure.
And then she sends him off to play,
proclaiming what a brave boy he is today.

A mother’s love is strong and fierce;
protecting her child and calming his fears.
She’ll shelter him from hurt and harm,
yet give him room to explore and learn.

A mother guides with a careful hand
knowing he must learn on his own to stand
And as he grows, she cheers him on,
glowing with pride through each milestone.

A mother longs to lead the way
to Jesus love and saving grace.
She shares her faith at every turn,
and prays he’ll learn to search and discern.

A mother knows he’ll make mistakes;
that some things are learned through trials and pain.
And if he should wander away for a time,
she’ll always be there with arms open wide.

A mother’s love is steadfast and sure,
and come what may, it will endure.
It’s a rock on which her child can stand,
but when he falls it’s a soft place to land.


Ephesians 4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
2 Timothy 2b reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
Romans 12:12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.
