Mother Day Poem - The Comfort of A Mother's Hug

Mother Day Poem

The poem below was submitted to me the day before Mother's Day. What a lovely poem it is, in that it captures perfectly the comfort a mother brings a child and the joy that giving comfort brings a mother.

My heartfelt thanks to Susan Brewer for writing this poem and to B.J. Brewer for submitting it.

A MOTHER'S HUG

by Susan Brewer

A child sits at his window
Watching storm clouds in the sky

Knowing that he's frightened
Not really knowing why

Maybe it’s the thunder
Could be it’s the rain

Maybe it’s the lightning
Mirrored on the window pane

But it really doesn’t matter
What fears the day may bring

If you’re safe and snug in a mother’s hug
You can face most anything

So soon the smiles of childhood
Turn Into teenage frowns

It seems so much of growing up
Consists of falling down

mother day poem

And through those painful middle years
I soon would come to know

The kind of pain that hurts the most

Is the kind that doesn’'t show

Now children do get older
But a child they still remain

Childish fears of darkness
Give way to worldly pain

Maybe it’ss the sadness
When you lose someone you know

Maybe it’s the grief that comes
From reaping what you sow

But it really doesn'’t matter
What fears the day may bring

When you'’re safe and snug in a mother’s hug
You can face most anything

Now I still look out those windows
At storm clouds in the sky

At hopes and fears and joys and tears
Of many years gone by

And I thank God for the blessing
Of allowing me to be

The one who gives the comfort
When my children come to me

Cause it really doesn'’t matter
What fears the day may bring
When you’'re safe and snug in a mother’s hug
You can face most anything...
