~ Happy Mothers Day – Celebrating Nurturers ~
By Michael Sage
Oh Mother, Oh Mother of mine,
The light of love through you doth shine,
My character you sculpt and carefully define,
My future you determine and gently align.
Oh Mother, Oh Mother so dear,
You teach me life’s rules to which I should adhere,
When I stumble you lift me up and tell me not to fear,
And my successes you celebrate with a twinkle and a tear.
Oh Mother, Oh Mother so great,
You teach me to love and never to hate,
And at times when on thin ice I seem to skate,
Your advise me with love that never seems to abate.
Oh Mother, Oh Mother of love,
You are the proverbial beautiful white dove,
You lead me towards goodness with a nudge and a shove,
Thank you for everything, but especially for your love.
AND GRANDMA’S TOO…
While we honor all our mothers
with words of love and praise.
While we tell about their goodness
and their kind and loving ways.
We should also think of Grandma,
she’s a mother too, you see….
For she mothered my dear mother
as my mother mothers me.
