A mother (part2)


A mother: one to be thought of and cared for
A mother: words aren't enough to describe her love
A mother: at least nine months of labour
A mother: second only to the saviour
Just one look and you'll know who she is
Like a hen covers her chicks under her wings
A mother protects her kids
A mother is patient and silent
A mother walks in prudence
Humble and calm in peaceful charm
A mother ensures that you're warm
A mother makes self sacrifices
A mother won't let the wise man cut you in half
A mother cautiously answers what she's asked
Black, brown, white, yellow mothers;
same features
A mother mends a broken heart
A mother, a friend, a counselor

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
