My Inspiration is a work of art by Fred Mathews with poetry by Shahidah illustrating a mother proudly holding one of her children in each hand.
From heaven comes my inspiration
true wisdom from the light above.
There is no greater gift on earth
than the gift of a mother's love.
In her arms she shields and treasures
with her life as no one can,
asking God to guide and help her
know the whys, the where, the whens.
As the light from heaven shines,
let thy grace and wisdom flow.
Hold us with thy strong protection,
please God never let me go.
