An ode to you and what you are,
To what you’ve done and what you do,
To your commitment to wisdom’s way,
To your compliance to wisdom’s laws,
To your ability to see what they are,
To the inner eye that’s placed in your heart,
To your affection toward all things,
To your facilities to see the unseen,
To your willingness to walk upon God’s path,
To your commitment to your offspring,
To the sacrifices you make for their welfare,
To your tears for their afflictions,
To your courage to let them go in time,
And to your selfless dedication.
You are what God’s plan is meant to be,
A fulfillment of his furthest dream,
Of letting nature’s instinct influence you,
For letting it in to guide you,
For holding on to it, you, a pillar of tenacity,
A mother that deserves recognition,
A mother that lets wisdom be her guide.
Happy Mother’s Day, Mrs. Wisdom.
