A Mother's Love


You stumbled, I caught you
Put you on your feet again,
You cried, i wept
For the broken heart,
I could not mend
Every tear you shed,
I also shed for you
All happiness you felt
I could feel too,
So I end this in saying
Having you for a daughter and son,
Has made my life worth while!
