Mother’s Poem: I Will Hold You Always

Mother’s Poem: I Will Hold You Always

by Judy Davis

I held you the moment you entered this world,

I held you as you took your first steps.

I held you as you struggled to ride a bike,

And I held my tears as you walked into school that very first time.

I held my hands in prayer as you held the keys to my car,

I held your heart when it was breaking.

I held my breath as you opened that letter,

I held my head high when your dream became a reality.

I held back my sadness as you began your new life,

I held my tongue when you knew more than I.

I hold my breath as you find your way,

I will hold your child the day you understand why

I hold you forever in my heart.

I will Hold You Always,

I am your mother.
