POEMS FOR MOTHERS: “You Were There” by Trina Graves


“You Were There”

During my childhood: You Were There
Nurturing with your loving care
Through the ups and downs of it all
Picking me up when I would fall
Always there to kiss goodnight
And cuddle if I woke with a fright
Showing me love and trust were the way
To practice being, with each new day

As I grew up: You Were There
Easing me out into the glare
The big wide world dazzled bright
But I had your guidance to do what’s right
Becoming a mother at a young age
Your influence helped in each turning page
When I was left with a broken heart
With your resilience, I didn’t fall apart

Now I am blessed because: You Are There
Living into old age with peace and flair
We share stories of life and family
Lessons I’ve learned from you are clear to see
As individuals, our views are not all the same
But our core connection will always remain
You taught me to be open to receive
The presence of God, because of you, I believe

When the time comes I know: You’ll Be There
An unfailing faith we do both share
Your physical presence will move on
But in no way will you be gone
You’ll be living on in peace and love
Re-united with those up above
I will speak to you in my mind
Your reply and love, I’ll always find

My beloved Mother..
You Were There
Because you always care
A pure love beyond compare
From you I learned to share
When everything is laid to bare
We let go – to God – to be aware
