More Than A Mother

Submitted By: daisygirl2

When God set the world in place, when He hung the stars up in space,
when He made the land and the sea, then He made you and me.

He sat back and saw that was good, He saw things to be as they should.
Just one more blessing He had in store; He created a mother,
but whatever for?

He knew a mother would have a special place to shine
His reflection on her child's face.
A mother will walk the extra mile just to see her children smile.
She'll work her fingers to the bone to make a house into a home.

A mother is there to teach and guide, a mother will stay right bu your side.
She'll be there through your pain and strife, she'll stay constant in your life.

A mother will lend a helping hand until you have the strength to stand.
She'll pick you up when you are down,
when you need a friend she'll stick around.

A mother is one who listens well, will keep her word; will never tell.

A mother never pokes or pries but stands quietly by your side,
giving you the strength you need, encouraging you to succeed.

A mother is one who can be strong when you need someone to lean on.

You're more than a mother to me; a reflection of Him in your face I see,
a love that knows no boundaries.

I'm glad that you chose to be all this and more to me.
You share a love that knows no end, you're more than my mother,
you are my friend.
