A Mother's Love



A mother’s love is steady,

enduring, strong and true;

She always loves her children,

no matter what they do.

These little souls are given

into her special care

To instruct, correct and cherish,

to lift them up in prayer.


With loving heart and gentle hands

this small life she will mold,

She will cherish and treasure

more than silver or gold.

A mother needs great patience

to bring a child up right

And a caring cheerfulness

to make each day more bright.


It takes a special wisdom

to know what must be done

To instill the best virtues

in a daughter or a son.

A mother’s love is endless,

unselfish and forgiving;

Her children sometimes bring her pain

but also joy in living.


A mother is the one to whom

God entrusts the keeping

Of these special little ones,

when awake and when they’re sleeping.

The tender, sweet devotion

does not come from any other

But from God when he gives a child

the love of a mother.
