“God Made a Wonderful Woman” by Unknown
God made a wonderful woman,
A mother who never grows old;
He made her smile of the sunshine.
And he molded her a heart of pure gold;
In her eyes he placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful mother,
And he gave that dear mother to me.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the hardworking moms out there. This poem really speaks to me because it reminds me of my own wonderful mom. The absence of words allows for one to use their imagination to explore the different definitions that come with the word, Mother. The way it paints a picture without going into too much detail is one of the reasons I picked it. You never know how much our mothers go through, so this poem can act as a reminder to remember to be careful in taking our loved ones for granted.
Till next time,
Sincerely, The Poem Perfectionist…
