Poem: A Mother’s Journey

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.
