A Mother’s Smile
I like the way you smile at me
I love your special ways
You show me that I’m valued
maybe more than I know.
Sometimes I’m not fully aware
of the thoughts that you think of me
You remember me from the day of my birth
to you, I’m the best thing on this earth.
Janet Vargas © May  2012
It’s amazing the way a mother has an innate
ability to love more than one child this way!

Your Arms Were Always Open
Your arms were always open
when I needed a hug
Your heart understand
when I needed a friend
Your gentle eyes were stern
when I needed a lesson
Your strength and love
guided me and gave me wings
to help me soar.

A Mother
A Mother is one who
understands the things
you say and do.

Who always overlooks
your faults and sees the
best in you.

A Mother is one whose
special love inspires you
day by day.

Who fills your heart with
gladness in her warm
and thoughtful way.

A Mother is all these things
and more - the greatest
treasure known.

And the dearest Mother in
all of the world is the one I
call my own.

Mother’s Birthday
I like to show that you’re special
On this your Birthday_______
You bring me fond memories
Of the way that you celebrate mine.
I may not be with you all the time__
I love you mum, for you are mine.

Janet Vargas © May  2012

Mothers and Daughters
You can see it in their eyes,
in tender hugs and long good-byes,
a love that only moms and daughters know.

You can see it in their smiles,
through passing years and changing styles,
a friendship that continually seems to grow.

You can see it in their lives,
the joy each one of them derives,
in just knowing that the other one is there...

To care and to understand,
lend an ear or hold a hand,
and to celebrate the memories they share.

My Mum. She has always been a caring person 
as long as I remember. She likes to learn things and is interested in people and life around her.

Happy Mother's Day
"Happy Mother's Day" means more
Than have a happy day.
Within those words lie lots of things
We never get to say.
It means I love you first of all,

Then thanks for all you do.
It means you mean a lot to me,
And that I honor you.

But most of all, I guess it means
That I am thinking of
Your happiness on this, your day,
With pleasure and with love

"Wonderful Mother"
God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old;
He made her smile of the sunshine,
And He molded her 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.

    Our Mother is the Sweetest
    Our mother is the sweetest and
    Most delicate of all.
    She knows more of paradise
    Than angels can recall.
    She’s not only beautiful
    But passionately young,
    Playful as a kid, yet wise
    As one who has lived long.

    Her love is like the rush of life,
    A bubbling, laughing spring
    That runs through all like liquid light
    And makes the mountains sing.

    My Jesus Mum
    You’re a special mother
    to me there is no other.
    You treat me like I’m special
    even when I’m relentful.
    You pick me up from my mistakes
    you bless me always for Jesus’ sake
    The sound of rejoicing you always make
    and this is to say I LOVE YOU.
    Janet Vargas © May  2012

    This is my impression of a Jesus Mum
    It’s always important to bless our children
    For Jesus sake….and theirs!

    Mother's Love
    Her love is like
    an island in life's ocean,
    vast and wide
    A peaceful, quiet shelter
    From the wind, the rain, the tide.
    'Tis bound on the north by Hope,
    By Patience on the West,
    By tender Counsel on the South
    And on the East by Rest.
    Above it like a beacon light
    Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;
    And through the changing scenes of life
    I find a haven there.

    A Mother’s Love
    There is something about a mum
    Her love shines like the morning sun
    To speak of her praise on her special day
    Of her gentle ways remember and say
    You bring me cheer when you are near
    You’re precious to me, your love is so free
    I want you to know, your grace still shows
    In the things that you do and I love you.

    A Precious Mother
    Mom You've given me so much,
    Love from your heart
    and the warmth of your touch.

    The gift of life and you're a friend to me.
    We have a very Special Bond
    which only comes from God...
    I'm sure you agree.

    As a child I would say Mommy I Love You,
    Now you're my Mother so dear
    I love you even more
    with each and every new year.

    If I could had chosen,
    I would have picked no other.
    Than for be my lifelong friend
    and Precious Mother.

    Mother and Son
    You grow more precious with age my dear
    when I think of you my heart's of Good Cheer
    My constant companion and my close friend
    my love for you shall be without end.
    When I live beyond those twinkly stars
    my thoughts of you will not be far...
    but till then my love, we have plenty of time
    to live each day and make them shine.

    My Mother's Heart   
    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.

    To my Son
    Oh how the years go by,
    Oh how time can certainly fly.
    From once just a thought in far away dreams,
    now into my arms and in my eyes gleam
    the presence of you.
    Your laughter and smiles
    which go on for miles,
    warms my heart and soul.
    You're growing up so fast,
    as I wish each moment with you to last forever. 
    My little boy will someday be a man
    and right by your side I will forever stand.
    I will pick up the pieces when you fall,
    I will hold your hand and help you stand tall.
    And when the day comes when you are on
    your own,
    never feel that you are alone.
    No matter how near or far apart
    I am always right there in your heart.
    Always remember whatever you go through
    that no matter what, I will always love you.

    Mother is Just a Simple Word
    Mother is just a simple word
    yet it's especially dear...
    And it seems to mean much
    more with each passing year...
    Each word of Love and Affection
    describes you mother...
    It's a word that's filled with love,
    a word that reflects everything that's
    wonderful - Wonderful just like you.

    God's Gift to Me
    I don't want to kiss you goodnight,
    so I'll just keep holding you tight!
    Because I know, you'll change and you'll grow...
    You'll get bigger with each morning light.
    I know that the sky is full of stars,
    and dreams will call your name from afar...
    I'm anxious to see all you're going to be,
    but I'm sure gonna miss who you are!
    But I'll keep you right here, in my heart,
    and I'll memorize each little part.
    One day you will grow, and I'll miss you so,
    But I'll keep you right here, in my heart.
    These fingers that curl around my hand,
    must do things that no other can.

    My Mommy Cuddles Me
    kisses me, hugs me and misses me
    Washes my clothes for me,
    giggles and talks with me,
    Says "sweet dreams" to me,
    I am glad she belongs to me..

    There is no love, like a mother's love  
    like the precious bond that comes from God

    never changing for all time...
    a mother's love will shine.
    God bless these special mothers
    for all the tears and heartache

    a mother's love lives on...
    with God's blessings on each one.
    Be thankful for our mothers,
    from the power God has given.

    If I Raised My Child Again
    If I had my child to raise all over again,
    I'd build self-esteem first,
    and point the finger less.
    I would do less correcting
    and watch with my eyes.
    I would care to know less
    I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
    and seriously play.
    I would run through more fields
    and less tugging.
    I would be firm less often,
    I'd model less about the love of power,

    She always knows just what to do
    And to show she loves them, too.
    She's the first person to look for-
    And they always keep asking for more.

    For she's loving, patient and wise.
    Even when they are grown –
    To claim Grandmother as their own!

    And  Gran Too
    While we honor all our mothers
    with words of love and praise.
    While we tell about their goodness
    and their kind and loving ways.
    We should also think of Gran,
    she's a mother too, you see....
    For she mothered my dear mother
    as my mother mothers me.

    A Walk with Grandma
    I like to walk with Grandma,
    she takes small steps like mine.
    She never says "let's hurry-up!
    she always takes her time.
    I like to walk with Grandma,
    her eyes see things like mine.
    Shiny stones, a fluffy cloud,
    stars at night that shine.
    People rush their whole day through,
    they rarely stop to see.
    I'm glad that God made Grandmas
    unrushed and young like me!

    What Grans are For
    Grandmas are for stories
    about things of long ago.
    Grandmas are for caring
    about all the things you know...
    Grandmas are for rocking you
    and singing you to sleep,
    Grandmas are for giving you
    nice memories to keep...
    Grandmas are for knowing
    all the things you're dreaming of...
    But, most importantly of all,
    grandmas are for love.

    Nan's Special Guests
    Last week we went to Nana's place
    her table was covered in vivid lace
    She said she was saving it for quite some time
    and now that we're growing up that will be fine
    So now we are her special guests
    we learn her etiquette, neatly dressed.

    Our Lovely Nan
    There's no-one like our lovely Nan
    she makes us all feel special
    on occasions meals are planned
    a place is set for all her fans
    Her stories are so plentiful
    ones of yesteryear and all.

    Grandma's Hugs Are
    Made Of Love!
    Everything my grandma does
    is something special made with love.
    She takes time to add the extra touch
    that says, "I love you very much."
    She fixes hurts with a kiss and smile
    and tells good stories grandma-style.
    It's warm and cozy on her lap
    for secret telling or a nap.
    And when I say my prayers at night
    I ask God to bless and hold her tight.
    Cause when it comes to giving hugs
    my grandma's arms are filled with love!

    My Nan. She always sees the good in everyone and always has a good word to say. She is also a good listener.

    Gran's Sunshine Smile
    A grandma is someone
    who's dear in every way
    Her smile is like the sunshine
    that brightens each new day
    A grandma is someone
    who plays a special part
    in all the treasured memories
    we hold within our heart.
    Author Unknown 

    To Be Like You, Gran
    Your watchful eye protects me, mostly from myself,
    Your unconditional love encourages me to be myself,
    Your confidence empowers me to try new things
    while your laughter fills me with hope,
    Your many acts of kindness soften my heart and make me stronger,
    Under your guidance, I have grown and someday,
    when someone calls me gran
    I pray she feels the same way about me.

    Gran's Special Touch   
    Grandmother, we appreciate you,  
    Because of you  
    each day is a little brighter,  
    The sun shines a little warmer,  
    Foods tastes better  
    and life is simply sweeter,  
    You bind us together with love and devotion,   This family you created with such tender loving care,  
    We want you to know how much you mean 
    to each and everyone of us,  
    And, especially that we cherish you  
    every moment of every day!

    My Dear Mum
    Whoever said you lose beauty with age
    for beauty's within the heart
    For all the days you've smiled at me
    you loved me from the start.
    I think of you when skies are blue
    those moments our hearts are in tune.
    You've grown more interesting with age
    I could write more than a page.
    You are the best friend I ever had
    when I think of you my heart is glad
    that I've had a mother just like you...
    one that's faithful, constantly true.
    I'd just like to say that "I love you!"

    A Daughter and Mother
    A bond between a daughter and mother
    is a bond that's like no other
    it grows more precious with age
    those things you care to relate.
    If I only knew those gems in you
    that I see in times I spend with you.
    You were always quiet
    but it's come to light__
    the treasures I see in you.
    Sharing your interests as you share mine
    our bond has grown deeper with time.

    If Roses Grow in Heaven
    If Roses grow in Heaven
    Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
    Place them in my Mother's arms
    and tell her they're from me.

    Tell her that I love her and miss her,
    and when she turns to smile,
    place a kiss upon her cheek
    and hold her for awhile.

    Because remembering her is easy,
    I do it every day,
    but there's an ache within my heart
    that will never go away.

    This Poem is by Request - to keep in the context of my Web-Site, I think it's more Beautiful than sad...

    You think I'm Special
    I really feel quite special
    That God has chosen you.
    To be a person in my life
    Who knows me through and through.
    The time that we spend talking,
    I've always felt you heard...
    You've been so good at listening
    To each and every word.
    And even things I didn't share,
    You somehow heard them too.
    I think this is a special gift
    That God has given you.
    So I just want to thank you
    For being there for me,
    And showing me acceptance
    And love so totally.

    And for the strength I will have,
    Because of you, grandma.

    Wonderful Mother
    God made a wonderful mother,

    A mother who never grows old;
    He made her smile of the sunshine,
    And He moulded her 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.

    That Wonderful Mother of Mine
    The moon never beams without bringing me dreams
    Of that wonderful mother of mine.
    The birds never sing but a message they bring
    Of that wonderful mother of mine.
    Just to bring back the time, that was so sweet to me,
    Just to bring back the days, when I sat on her knee.

    I pray every night to our Father above,
    For that wonderful mother of mine.
    I ask Him to keep her as long as He can
    That -- wonderful mother of mine.
    There are treasures on earth, that made life seem worthwhile,
    But there's none can compare to my mother's smile.

    You are a wonderful mother, dear  Mother 
    of mine.  
    You'll hold a spot down deep in my heart,
    'Till the stars no longer shine.
    Your soul shall live on forever,
    On through the fields of time.
    For there'll never be another to me,
    Like that wonderful Mother of mine.
    Clyde Hager 

    Grandparents bestow upon their grandchildren
    The strength and wisdom that time
    And experience have given them.
    Grandchildren bless their Grandparents
    With a youthful vitality and innocence
    That help them stay young at heart forever.
    Together they create a chain of love
    Linking the past with the future.
    The chain may lengthen,
    But it will never part...
