Mother's heart opens like a flower,
releasing her love hour after hour.
Her hug and extra little squeeze,
adds to our confidence, we are pleased!
A mother looked into the eyes of her new born babe,
She smiled as she cried at the happiness it gave.
She talked to the child in a quiet tone,
and promised she wouldn't desert, or leave him alone.
I opened the door and climbed the stair,
felt your presence, then you were there.
Your cool soft hands stroked my hair.
The clock turned back, I know you still care.
