For Her A Poem for Mom

I wrote this back in 2004 when I first started writing. When I was a child the one thing I remember being taught besides not to lie, morals, and manners, was to pray. She taught me how to pray and ever since she taught me that as a kid it is something that I do. She knew she wouldn't be with me forever like I wanted her to. My mother passed away in 1990 from polycystic kidney disease and this is my tribute to her and all other mothers.
I hope you enjoy it.

For Her
A Poem For Mom(s)

Though she was taken away from my side,
She instilled a Love by which I'll abide,
Giving her love when no one else did,
Making life bright when I was a kid.
Her hair beautifully flowing with grace,
Always shining with a smile on her face,
Yes there were times life got pretty rough,
Picking us up she taught how to be tough.
Her love guides me in life without her,
Each beat of my heart it's felt louder,
One thing I know down in my heart,
She's all around and we're not apart.
This helps me make it each day,
It's her I think about when I pray,
All should know she can't be replaced,
If you still have yours don't let any time waste.
Sometimes she's viewed as cruel and unkind,
She's being forced to because we don't mind,
We've each been that child who wants to be,
The one believing her traits aren't in me.
Refusing her Love because of the form,
We're ungrateful for life or even being born.
Mom's make mistakes by no fault of their own,
She's giving Love the way she has been shown,
Then is the time we should each understand,
She's the truth behind Love's Master Plan.
