  1. Only One Mother
    Poet: Unknown

    Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
    Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
    Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
    Hundreds of bees in the sunny weather;

    Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
    Hundreds of lambs in the purple clover,
    Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
    But only one mother the world over.

  2. Your Day
    Poet: Julie Hebert

    Mother, you have always been someone I could count on,
    To be there even though your day is slam packed with to do's.
    I hope this Mother's Day life allows you,
    To be able to sit back and relax and show up, just because you want to!

    For once in your life, I'd like to see,
    A mother who can be loved unconditionally.
    I realized you aren't used to such extravagance,
    And that's not the way things are done traditionally.

    But today is a day worth expanding our thinking,
    How we all believe one should be expected to act.
    As a species, we continue to evolve every day,
    And you are no longer expected to react.

    No, today of all days we expect nothing.
    That's right, nothing is what we all want to see.
    So sit back and get comfy, eat, and let us serve you.
    The only reason to get up would be if you needed to pee!

    Mother, today count on me, so you can sit back and relax,
    And feel the unconditional love surrounding you.
    Many blessings on this special day of all days,
    And may you always remember we are here for you.

  3. Dear, faithful motherhood, so great and true, We never shall forget to honor you.

  4. We Honor You
    Poet: Unknown

    ‘Tis Mother’s Day we celebrate,
    ‘Tis Mother’s Day we are making great,
    ‘Tis mother’s name we emulate,
    On this bright, lovely day in May,
    Oh may our lives devoted be,
    Our memories hold her lovingly,
    Dear, patient motherhood, so good and true
    We never shall forget to honor you.

    From childhood’s time to manhood’s prime,
    Her love is felt in every chime,
    In trials deep, like mountains steep,
    Its soothing power is most sublime;
    When joys abide and success betide,
    She shares it all with wondrous pride;
    Dear, faithful motherhood, so great and true,
    We never shall forget to honor you.

  5. I Know Now
    Poet: Julie Hebert

    To my Mother on mothers day,
    I feel the need to apoligize.
    I know now, how raising me must have been,
    I really hope there were less lows than highs.

    I know now, I made you cry alot,
    Much more than a mother should do.
    I know now, you were always afraid for me,
    From the time I was born, and as I grew.

    I know now, how many times you must have felt,
    Not perfect, not good enough.
    I know now, I hurt you and you never told me so,
    You always had to act so tough.

    I know now, you carried me much longer,
    Than just the nine months pregnancy takes.
    I know now, how without prevail,
    You put me first no matter the stakes.

    I know now, it broke your heart,
    Every time that I cried.
    I know now, I drove you crazy often,
    With worries, never being satisfied.

    I know now, being a mother,
    Can be heartbreaking and hard on the brain.
    But I also know now, Mother,
    You would do it all over again.

    So thank you for then, and I thank you for now.
    I thank you for the highs and the lows.
    I know now who to thank for who I've become,
    And for all the things I now know.

  7. Wish I Could Give You The World
    Poet: Julie Hebert

    A swipe of a tear and a squeeze of my hand,
    Are some comforts you brought to me.
    The love that I felt each and every day,
    You have always brought me so much glee.

    You tried to protect me as much as you can,
    But we all know you can't do it all.
    A super hero to me you have always been,
    Eventually though, it was my time to stand up tall.

    You taught me well through out my years,
    I never fell so hard I couldn't stand back up.
    Your words remind me to keep doing my best,
    Even when things seem to blowup.

    And when things are great and life couldn't get any better,
    I remember being thankful says so much.
    So many years of watching you give back to others,
    Never forgetting your loving touch.

    So today on Mothers Day I want to give you the world,
    Because that is exactly what you deserve.
    Though that is a little outside my reach,
    Sending you many blessings outside the normal curve.
