A Prayer for Mothers

When you awake on your special day,

A day all yours each year in May,

Please hear my prayer for you

And say one for me, too.

You are tired, you are stressed,

When you should be feeling blessed.

You are resilient, you are tough,

And your best is good enough.

Look within yourself and see

The best Mom that you can be,

Then get some coffee and a snack

‘Cause all good moms have your back.

When the kids are acting crazy,

And the future is looking hazy,

Breathe deep and close your eyes,

And let out that heavy sigh,

For it flies by in an instant,

Just last month they were all infants!

Little coos, smirking smiles,

Now they leap and run for miles.

Far away from your arms,

Into a big world full of harm.

Try not to stress

Because you’re the best

that you can be

and then, you’ll see,

I’ll say a prayer just for you

For when your heart is feeling blue,

To remind you that you’ll thrive

And you’ll keep the kids alive.

You can do it!

You’ll get through it!

And tomorrow will be better.

Though, you should write your Mom a letter

To say sorry for the times

She had to put you in line.

And some day your kids will write you

a note just to say “thank you”

for all the wonderful things you did

when they were wild, unruly kids.

You’re their cook, maid, nurse, and hero,

Even when you feel like a zero.

Pick yourself up, and take care of YOU,

And please say a prayer for me, too.
