POEMS: “Thank you” (motherhood) by Trina Graves

sonnet-17-mother-and-babe

“Thank You”

Thank you for your Mothering, right from the very start
You nurtured our family, consistently working from your heart

Thank you for Leading me to become an intuitive mother
Using my inner guidance not just the advice of any other

Thank you for all the little things you have ever Said and Done
That have made my life so happy, full of delight and lots of fun

Thank you for your Presence, I know at all times you will be there
Whenever I need you, it’s heart-warming to know you always care

Thank you for your Guidance all through the many years
Your love and support has helped me wipe away the countless tears

Thank you for your Honesty you always taught me right from wrong
By your example I learned, and now live with integrity my whole life long

Thank you for your Morality although nothing much was said
I grew up choosing to truly be in love, before I share my bed

Thank you for your Positive Attitude, it’s truth has helped me see
I reap what I sow in life, my thoughts guide who I will be

Thank you for your Happiness, always showing me a smile
Even when clouds are present, you know they will only last awhile

Thank you for Teaching me life’s challenges are often like a test
I’ve learned from your example, to always strive to do my best

Thank you for your Wisdom, when things all get too much
You say, “Hand it over to God” to feel His guiding touch

Thank you for your Love, given to me unconditionally
Someone who consistently radiates that love is who I yearn to be

Thank you for your Knowledge, you may not think I’ve gained this from you
But degrees can’t teach the highest lessons, the most important is love, is so true

Thank you for Faith in the presence of God above
It’s been a guiding light for me, knowing of this love

Thank you for your Spiritual Essence, it’s helped me find my way
You taught me to seek my own path, I live it each and every day

Thank you for your Example to live a life of simple things
The joy of family and peace of nature, gives our spirit wings

Thank you for Providing a sanctuary of home, a feathered nest
Where all through the years I’ve been welcomed to return to for a rest

Thank you for your Life, though one day physically we will part
But I know we are eternally joined, by the love we share in our heart

Thank you for your Blessings that I know are always with me
I bless you and know our love unites us, forevermore into infinity

    A beautiful poem written from the heart. Though it’s not mother’s day but I think every day is mother’s day. We all share these feelings for our mother. I’m sharing the poem .

      Thank you Rashmi for your comment. I did write this poem for my mum for Mothers Day in 2015, but, as you say, everyday is a day to be thankful for our mothers. Thank you also for sharing it.
      Love, Light & Blessings ❤
