A Mother's Love


A Mother's love is stronger than any bough,
And we know how boughs can break.
She can turn tears into a smile,
Because a Mother knows the love it takes.
A Mother can accomplish anything,
Usually three times faster than Dad.
And we love to see her smile,
At the end of a movie that was sad.
A Mother can remember every appointment,
Better than any PDA.
She can tell us about each of our deliveries,
Each moment to the hour like it was yesterday.
A Mother will stay up all night,
Just to make sure we get our rest.
And even with the few hours of sleep she gets,
She still looks her best.
A Mother can buy the latest clothing trend,
Lower than any that are even heard of.
And if there was something we could never get enough of,
That would be our Mother's Love.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
