A Mother's Love Is Forever

As children, we can't comprehend,
Or fully realize
The meaning of our mother's love,
How tender and how wise....

The patience and forgiveness
That are part of every day;
The unexpected "little things"
She does in her own way.

Year go by before we can
Look back on life and see,
Through older eyes, and wiser hearts,
Her love and loyalty.

And yet, it's these, and other
Special things we'll hold so dear,
For memories of her steadfast love,
Will keep her ever near.
