My Mother

Her heart has never failed her.
Steadfast and full of hope,
It’s always been a beacon,
To those who need it most.

And still she stands there,
Through the sands of time,
Her feet stand firm through it all.

Her children all adore her,
Her husband calls on her for help.
Her family thinks she’s wonderful,
Sweet, kind, and sure and strong.

Her loving-kindness,
Will always shine.
I love my mother,
Best of all.
