Mother of Mine

Mother of Mine

(A Mother’s Day poem by Teri Couture – Copyright 2007)


On this one day of the year

We get to thank our mother dear

For all the great things she has done

There are so many; there’s a TON.


She taught us how to laugh and play

How to work and how to pray

How to love and to forgive

How to watch the way we live.


When I’m sick, to God she prays

And by my side all night she stays

Until she sees the light of day

And makes sure healing’s on the way.


She makes the house all nice and clean

And comforts me when kids are mean

She reads to me when I go to bed

There’s so much more to be said.


But here’s the thing I want to tell

I love my mother very well

Though Mother’s Day comes once a year

I’ll thank you always for your care.


I love you, Mom!
