Mother’s Day Poem

– Author Unknown-

If I could give you diamonds for each

tear you cried for me.  If I could give

you sapphires for each truth you’ve

helped me see.

If I could give you rubies for the

heart that you’ve known.  If I could

give you pearls for the wisdom you

have shown.

Then you’ll have a treasure, mother,

that would mount up to the skies.

That would almost match the

sparkle in your kind and loving eyes. 

But I have no pearls, no diamonds,

as I’m sure you’re well aware, so I’ll

give you gifts more precious.  My

devotion, love and care.
