Poet - Unknown
You filled my days with rainbow lights,
Fairytales and sweet dream nights
A kiss to wipe away my tears,
Gingerbread to ease my fears
You gave the gift of life to me,
And then in love, you set me free
I thank you for your tender care,
For deep warm hugs and being there
I hope that when you think of me,
A part of you, you'll always see

More verses about Mothers:
A Mother's love is something that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it or take that love away . . .
Helen Steiner Rice
Nobody knows of the work it makes
To keep the home together.
Nobody knows of the steps it takes,
Nobody knows-but Mother.
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden,
fall upon us when adversity takes the place of prosperity
when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine,
desert us when troubles thicken around us,
still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts
and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness,
and cause peace to return to our hearts.
