A celebration of Motherhood
|Now as I tend my garden, my children watch it grow,
And here, too, you’ll help me teach them everything I know.
Every day I'm still amazed by how peaceful and serene
Life can seem when I'm tending something green.
Now as I tend my garden, not yet quite as green as yours
My own little ones enjoy helping Mama with her chores.
The best part is when we over-water, creating a little flood,
Then it’s time to laugh and play in our backyard river of mud.
Now as I tend my garden, I see their curiosity unfold,
I answer questions I once asked, with answers I was told,
Then off they go, with thousands of discoveries to make,
And off I go, back to work with my clippers and a rake.
Now as I tend my garden, they frolic safe, loved and free,
I've come to realize what it took for you, doing so for me,
Patience, love, and a lot of work, but, then again we
Already knew how important a Mother's Garden will always be.
