A Poem for Mum Dee

by Mariah on May 13, 2010

Dearest Mum Dee,

A poem for you on mother’s day. Your love always astounds me. You have poured out your very self into my life over and over again, even as I rejected it. I’m unbelievably blessed to have a mom as great as you. Thank you for your sacrifice all these years! I would surely have been lost without your persistence…

-your favorite first-born daughter 😉

You Loved

When I was born
You cuddled
I laughed
You beamed
I cried
You healed
When I strayed
You prayed
I rejected
You persisted
I stumbled
You lifted
When I returned
You embraced
I matured
You delighted
I married
You entrusted

After you loved I loved
After you prayed I prayed
After you worshipped I worshipped

Your love is God’s love
The love that brings life

I couldn't find a single picture of the two of us! I thought this was the next best thing... =)
