“My Mother’s Heart”

My Mother’s Heart
by Jill Lemming

My mother’s heart is so tender
and her face has a gentle glow
She’s my friend and my inspiration,
she’s the sweetest mom I know.

She gives herself so freely
to those who share her life
She clearly loves her children
with the love that comes from Christ

Her eyes are full of compassion
her voice is soft and mild
She lives for helping others,
leaving “heartprints” all the while.

My mother’s love is special
and grows sweeter with every year
God blessed me with an angel;
she’s my precious mother, dear.
