Mothers Day Poem

A Mother’s Poem
By Jennifer Wasik

I thought of you and closed my eyes
And prayed to God today.
I asked what makes a Mother
And I know I heard him say:

“A Mother has a baby
This we know is true.”
“But God can you be a Mother
When your baby’s not with you?”

“Yes, you can,” He replied
With confidence in His voice
“I give many women babies
When they leave is not their choice.”

“Some I send for a lifetime
And others for a day.
And some I send to feel your womb
But there’s no need to stay.”

“I just don’t understand this, God
I want my baby here.”
He took a breath and cleared His throat,
And then I saw a tear.

“I wish I could show you
What your child is doing today.
If you could see your child smile
With other children and say:

“We go to earth and learn our lessons
of love and life and fear.
My mommy loved me oh so much
I got to come straight here.

I feel so lucky to have a mom
Who had so much love for me.
I learned my lessons very quickly
My Mommy set me free.

I miss my Mommy oh so much
But I visit her each day.
When she goes to sleep
