A Mother’s Day Tribute
by Frederick Douglass Grimes, III
Mothers are a special breed,
Always there in time of need.
They give us life
And help us to avoid strife.
Mothers keep the family together,
Going to work in all types of weather.
Sometimes not shown the gratitude they so richly deserve,
Just trying to show love to God and the children they serve.
Some may not have their child to hold
Because of circumstances beyond their control,
But that’s all right, because God knows all.
Anyone who forms a wedge between mother and child will surely have to answer the call.
Foster, adoptive, stepmothers, one and all –
No other stands as tall.
The Lord blessed this world with Mothers, it’s true.
If not for mothers, there would not be any me nor you.
The special bond between mother and child will never be broken.
This word is true; The Blind Poet has spoken! ❤
To all Mothers past and present,
May the Lord bless you on this Mother's Day!
