I wrote this poem as a tribute for my mother, My parents divorced when I was little and my mother raised me. She worked hard to make sure I had all my needs met. I'm sure sometimes it seemed to be a thankless job, and I don't know if I have ever really told her how much her sacrifices have meant to me. Her strong spirit has molded me into the woman I am today. This poem is for you mom, if I have told you, I'm sure it Hasn't been enough Thank you for being my mom. This poem is for anyone who would like to honor their mother.

A Tribute To Mother

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life - Family Poems

God Gave Me An Angel
God gave me an angel right here on earth,
She taught me my values and gave me self worth,
She guides me through life with her wisdom, God's light,
She steers me from wrong, and leads me toward right.

She stands by my side when things are rough,
She taught me in bad times we need to be tough.
She is there when I need her throughout all my years,
She laughed with me in happy times, and comforted my tears.

My angel on earth was sent from above,
God paid her not in wages, but with eternal love.
She has been my confidante, my rock, my protector,
And when God says her job is through, I know I won't forget her.

She need not a halo, or silken wings of grace,
For the glory of God's love shines upon her face.
My Guardian angel, can be replaced by no other,
She is gods gift to me - I call her my dear mother.

    i would kindly like to express thanks for your poem. i have seen lots of them but i chosed your poem cause it carrys the message that mothers sometimes need to feel appreciated too. even at 34 years old i sometimes take my mom for granted. i don't mean to. i spent the last so many hours crying and worrying about my mom pasting away. cause she has emphysemia of the lungs. i wanted to find a poem to express to my mom how much i truely care and how greatful i am to her. if not for her. i may never fall in love again. i don't know if i will. but if i do fall deeply in love. everything i owe to my mother who is selfish and would do without so i can be happy. thanks mom. i truely am greatful. your the tops. !

    I Love this poem. i have been searching for months for the perfect gift for my mom on her b-day and came across this poem and have decided to tattoo this poem(only with the authors consent) across my heart and let my mother read it aloud on her birthday. this poem is definitly the only poem that should be for people that adore their mothers the way the author does hers.
