A mother’s love is like an island in life’s ocean vast and wide- 
A peaceful, quiet shelter from the restless, rising tide. 

A mother’s love is like a fortress, and we seek protection there 
When the waves of tribulation seem to drown us in despair. 

A mother’s love is a sanctuary where our souls can find sweet rest 
From the struggle and the tension of life’s fast and futile quest. 

A mother’s love is like a tower rising far above the crowd, 
Her smile is like the sunshine breaking through a threatening cloud. 

A mother’s love is like a beacon burning bright with faith and prayer, 
And through the changing scenes of life we can find a haven there. 

For a mother’s life is fashioned after God’s enduring love- 
It is endless and unfailing like the love of Him above. 

For God knew he couldn’t be everywhere, 
So He put His little Children in a loving mother’s care.
