I'm not a poet, and I know it .....
But this is for you
Single Moms on Mother's Day and everyday......
Your days are so long
but perseverance so strong
To stay strong you keep you eye on the prize
For the babies you sacrifice
You have the worry of the scurry
Getting them all from a to b can be a flurry
At times you find you have more mouths to feed than there is food in the house
And for them, you eat like a mouse
Sometimes bills go unpaid to make sure your kids have the supplies to make the grade.
You will do all you can do
For the gift that's been given to you.
You are a single mother
Going through the single struggle
Of raising you children alone
You are both mama and daddy in your home.
You are in and out of court
Trying to get some type of support
But the daddy can’t seem to keep a job
He doesn’t care if his children eat or starve
So, you do the best you can
Trying to raise boys into men.
At night you find yourself asking, “Why?”
And then sometimes you just have to cry.
If I can share a secret
that has gotten me through
And will do the same for you......
You do your best and God will do the rest!
He is the father to the fatherless.
They may go with less
But the love is endless!
He gives rest to the weary.
Rest single mom.....it may feel your in this alone, but trust, that you are not ever alone.
The reward for all single moms is in your child's smile and kiss at the end of a long hard day!
That's the fuel that takes you into the next day!
And so to you, I wish you all
Rest before tomorrow's endless call
Happy Mother's Day!
