You've Been Such a Wonderful Mother













For the nine months you carried each babe in your womb, 
‘Till the moment you safely delivered them; 
You’ve been such a wonderful Mother.

From the time you brought our first child into this world, 
‘Till the last one you cradled in your arms; 
You’ve been such a wonderful Mother.

For the baths that you gave and the meals you prepared, 
For the countless loads of laundry you washed; 
You’ve been such a wonderful Mother.

For tenderness when they cried and drying their eyes, 
For the long hours you sat up with them; 
You’ve been such a wonderful Mother.

For the times you sat up and the prayers you prayed, 
For the tears that you shed for them all; 
You’ve been a wonderful Mother.

For sacrifices made and great advice that you gave, 
For all the fearful moments you have braved; 
You’ve been such a wonderful Mother.

Your name may never be in the world’s spotlight, 
Nor your picture grace a magazine cover; 
But on this Mother’s Day we all sing your praise, 
Because you’ve been such a wonderful Mother! 

Happy Mother’s Day! 

Your grateful husband, L C
