I Said a Mother's Prayer for You
-------------------------------------------------

      I said a Mother's Day prayer for you
      to thank the Lord above
      for blessing me with a lifetime
      of your tenderhearted love.

      I thanked God for the caring
      you've shown me through the years,
      for the closeness we've enjoyed
      in time of laughter and of tears.

      And so, I thank you from the heart
      for all you've done for me
      and I bless the Lord for giving me
      the best mother there could be!



Mother's Love
---------------------------------------------------

      Her love is like an island
      In life's ocean, vast and wide
      A peaceful, quiet shelter
      From the wind, the rain, the tide.
      'Tis bound on the north by Hope,
      By Patience on the West,
      By tender Counsel on the South
      And on the East by Rest.
      Above it like a beacon light
      Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;
      And thro' the changing scenes of life
      I find a haven there.
     


In All Honor
---------------------------------------------------

      "Every man, for the sake of the great
      blessed Mother in Heaven,
      and for the love of his own little mother
      on earth, should handle all womankind gently,
      and hold them in all Honor."

      - Alfred Lord Tennyson



A Mother's Love
----------------------------------------------------------------------

      A mother's love! What can compare with it!
      Of all things on earth, it comes nearest
      to divine love in heaven.
      A mother's love means a life's devotion -
      and sometimes a life's sacrifice -
      with but one thought, one hope and one feeling,
      that her children will grow up healthy and strong,
      free from evil habits and able to provide for themselves.
      Her sole wish is that they may do their part like men and women,
      avoid dangers and pitfalls, and when dark hours come,
      trust in Providence to give them strength,
      patience and courage to bear up bravely.
      Happy is the mother when her heart's wish is answered,
      and happy are sons and daughters when they can feel that
      they have contributed to her noble purpose,
      and in some measure, repaid her unceasing,
      unwavering love and devotion.

These are beautiful, Vijay. Your Mother, I'm sure, smiles when she sees this love given from her son.
