A Mother’s Love


We are getting ready for mom’s funeral next week, and I was looking for a poem. But all the ones I found were too somber or about a child’s love for their mother.

I wanted one that describes my mother, and what she did for us. And I found this one below, which says it all…

A Mother’s Love

A Mother’s love is something that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain.
It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it or take that love away.

It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking.
It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems.

It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation.
A many splendoured miracle man cannot understand,
And another wondrous evidence of God’s tender guiding hand.

Helen Steiner Rice

(I miss you, mom. Your son, Michel.)
