Happy Mother's Day


Little bits of fabric
sewn together with care ~

one is rough and ready
the other dainty and fair.

Seams are sewn together

with love and tenderness ~
Mother's love surrounds them

with prayers and hugs caress.
The love and care of Mother

leave footprints on the heart ~
of children that she nurtures

until with wings depart.

So many days and nights

filled with love and care ~
one day released into the world

she prays from her rocking chair.
