Mother’s love is peace 

As we venture each new day 

She’s a well of love to return to 

And revitalize when we’re wrought 

 

A foundation of love 

Memories of how good we are 

Yet, how is the gift returned? 

How do innocent children thank their mothers? 

 

Every life is a source of love 

Though not always realized

Children are anchors 

That hold mother to life 

 

To honor Mother’s Day, my poems uses words from two quotes about mothers.

“Mother’s love is peace. It needs not be acquired, it need not be deserved.” -Erich Fromm

“Children are the anchors that hold a mother to life.” -Sophocles
