Mother by Alison Jean Thomas

This is your day;
I rejoice with you.
Your loving, compassionate heart,
Your wisdom and your depth,
You soothe me when I feel confused,
You make me smile and laugh.

This is your day;
I applaud you.
Unconquerable and strong,
You meet every challenge,
When things go wrong,
You sustain me.

This is your day;
I celebrate with you.
You help me strive and dream,
Respond to every plea,
You bear me with you-
I bear you with me.
My Mother.

Mom by Alison Jean Thomas

Your kiss was the cure-
Scuffed knees, grazed elbows and much more,
You made them better.

Later your hug, a chat, worked wonders too,
So here is my warmest embrace to you.-
You know you are loved.

So Many Reasons Why I Love You by Alison Jean Thomas

How many special reasons for why I love you so?
Perhaps I'd better make a list
Then you'll be sure to know.

I cannot lie
You make great pie
Your cakes are even better,
But that's not why
I'll write this rhyme
And put it in a letter.

I love your smile
I love your hugs
I love the way you laugh.
I love it when you wave to me
As I walk up the path.

'Cos when I'm coming home to you
That's what I love the most
And knowing that I'll see your face
I have to make a toast-
So Happy Mother's Day Mom!

My Friend... My Mom by Alison Jean Thomas

'I must tell Mom,' I think,
A thousand times a day
And with each thought
You lodge deeper in my heart
Eternally a part
Of my soul.

Healing Embrace by Jennifer Betts

When I got my first boo boo,
You kissed my knee.
Hugging you
Mended my first heartbreak.

Your love has always gotten me through,
You have always been by my side.
All I can say is I love you.
Thank you for being my mom.

Happy Mother's Day Poem by Jennifer Betts

While there doesn't need to be a day,
It's Mother's Day they say.
So love you we may,
On this happiest of day,
When we celebrate our Mom our way.

You Were There by Jennifer Betts

I don't remember when our life began,
But I know you were always there.
From bone to heart breaks,
You were there.

When I needed a shoulder to cry on,
You were there.
Our laughter filling the rooms,
You were there.

For the good times and bad,
You were there.
So on your specialist of days.
I am here.

Happy Mother's Day

Loving Mother by Jennifer Betts

My loving mother, and friend so dear.
Brightness shines in my life when you are near.
From the biggest moments to the small,
You've been there for them all.

Oh my smart, sassy mother.
You are like no other.
The world gave me the best that's true.
Because of giving me you.

My loving mother, and friend so dear.
Brightness shines when you are near.

You Are Gold by Jennifer Betts

Did you know you shine like gold?
Even when you get old.
Mother, your shine will never part.
Because you are my heart.
Your smile calms my fears.
And, you wipe away my tears.
Oh, how I love you.
And I know you love me too.

MOTHER by Jennifer Betts

Motivates me every day
Our family rock
There for me when I need it
Heart as pure as a diamond
Eyes shining brightly with love
Rely on her anytime

Mother's Love by Jennifer Betts

Your love is wider than the ocean.
It is steady as the sea.
Your love is peaceful as a summer's day.
Keeping me shelter from a raging storm.
Your love is tender as the sweetest lamb.
Calming my tide of overwhelming emotions.
Your love is like a beacon of light.
It always calls me home.

Your Heart by Jennifer Betts

You gave me a piece of your heart,
Even at the start.
You encouraged any dream.
You built my self-esteem.
Even when things got tough,
You taught me I was always enough.
You taught me right and wrong.
Your lessons in my memory are long.
You showed me the importance of strength.
But you were always ready at an arm's length,
To show me the greatest love of all time.

The Greatest Creators... My Mother by Jennifer Betts

With the greatest of care,
You molded me brick by brick.

With the patience of a saint,
You shaped me a little at a time.

With the creativity of an artist,
You allowed my personality to shine.

To the greatest of mothers,
Thank you for making me who I am.
