My Mother's Hand April 12, 2005 11:31 AM
Mother's Day is not so very far off so i would like to dedicate this to all Mother's and care givers everywhere...
As a child it was my mother's hand that fed me
washed me and patted me lovingly.
As I grew up it helped even more.
It helped me as I learn to cross the street
It helped me when I learn to print my name
It held my hand when I had to get a shot.
My mother's hand held mine as she told me what it meant to become a woman.
My mother's hand shook the day that I said
" I love him and I want to marry him."
I wish that my hand were a mother's hand
as gentle, loving, kind, guiding and strong as my mother's hand.
For as small as it be .....
there is no greater love than the love given to me in my mother's hand....
