A mother’s journey is full of joy and pain
The birth and raising of a child
Health, illness, victories and defeats her life is never mild
Through it all she brings love and there is gain.
She truly is an unconditional soul
Her job as a teacher, nurse and counselor are amazing
She helps the child dream and demonstrating the art of star gazing
Loving her God, husband, children and now grandchildren are her goals.
She is driven to be the best
Overcoming obstacles and giving no excuses ever
Following her dreams we all knew she was clever
She is tireless, when does she get time to rest?
Her time has been spent making the world a better place
She shows love, comfort, courage and heart
The journey was intense, steadfast right from the start
She has the most beautiful smile on her face.
A mother’s journey is not easy
As anything done worthwhile ever is in life
She promotes unity and not strife
Always seeking peace and puts others at ease.
