A Mother's Day Poem

"Mommy, Mommy!" You ran at my cries,
To where I lay fallen, with tears in my eyes.
You reached out your arms as you drew near,
You held me close and helped dry my tears.
With my little hands, I held on to you tight,
Somehow I knew Mom would make it all right.
Those years have long gone, and now I am grown.
Lo and behold, I have kids of my own.
They have had times when they've cried out in fear.
I've held them close, and helped dry their tears.
I look back fondly and say, "Thank you, Mom."
Whenever I needed you, you'd always come.
You never gave up, or quit praying for me,
That God would make me what I ought to be.
I owe you a debt I can never repay.
I love you Mom....
