A Poem For My Mother

**I want to share a poem I wrote for my Mom quite a while ago. I wrote it in 1996 and gave it to her as a Mother's Day gift(or maybe it was her birthday...hmmm, can't recall!)**

Mother's Love

A terrified girl
On tan, slender legs
Stands unsure of
Her way home.
Through a veil of tears
She recognizes the sure stride of Mother.
The sight eases all fear.
Mother is there.

A sad young woman
With a broken heart
Stands fearful of her future,
Uncertain of her way home.
Through hurt pride
She sees Mother,
A sturdy shoulder to lean on.
Mother is there.

Now a woman
Strong, yet timid with each step,
Stands proudly next to Mother.
She knows her way home,
Thankful for all her love and help.
Mother is there.

By Sommer Sorenson(1996)

What a BEAUTIFUL poem! It brought tears to my eyes to read it. What great truths. It made me appreciate my own mom all the more. Have a beautiful Mothers Day tomorrow!

(OT - a letter went out to you this week!) :)
