A Mother’s Gift

    Written in honor of my mother, and on Mother’s Day it has a special place in  my heart.. God Bless all of our mothers wherever they may be.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you,

Jake.

A Mother's Gift is forever

A Mother’s Gift is forever

A Mother’s Gift

You filled a space

no other could,

you taught me always

think the good,

of those I meet

along the way,

and that sunrise brings

a whole new day.

To dwell not, upon

a hurt or slight,

and let the heart decide

the wrong or right,

of what I do

or what is done,

then let it go

with the setting sun.

But, of all the lessons

I have learned,

there’s but one, upon

my soul’s been burned,

there is no stronger

force on earth,

nor gift, of any

greater worth.

Than a mother’s love

that’s given free,

to each of us

for eternity,

and wavers not

in life or death,

it never takes

a final breath.
