A Mother's Love

A Mother's Love

Nowhere will i find a love like a mother's love
Who did her best, to look her best
Whose love abounds, unconditional, endless
Outshines her beauty, because she is full of bounty
To the greatest joy of her life..her children

She would not trade for anything, for any treasure
They are the best things that ever happened to her
If only she could give all her life
Be born again and again
She will choose to be a mother
To the children she loves and adores.

The palm of her hands
Brings a touching offering of a smile
Making her children feel special
And being there when they need her

In sickness and in pain,
in the midst of the storm
She creates a song
That echoes sweetly of peace and joy in their hearts
bringing a lullaby
rocking them into a deep slumber

How sweet it is to have a mother
Who paints a meaning and a goal in our lives
The sunshine is even more bright
With her by our side..what can we ask for more

    Your portrait of motherhood is heartfelt and tenderly expressed. The other side of the maternal coin needs to be mentioned though. It's difficult to cope sometimes with the awesome job of rearing children and being there for them 24/7. Sometimes I used to think I was anchored to my brood (I'd never change them for a second, I hasten to add) and that the 'me' I used to be had disappeared under the sea of my responsibility. These days, grandmotherhood is blissful with all the love and cuddling and lots of time off. Happy Mothers Day, Meggie. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    Again, what a lovely tender poem to your mother. The last two stanzas are especially beautiful.

    A tribute written with lots of love for all the mothers in the world. As a mere man, I can only reflect, that without them none of us would have been born! Love Bob

    In sickness and in pain,
    in the midst of the storm
    She creates a song
    That echoes sweetly of peace and joy in their hearts
    bringing a lullaby
    rocking them into a deep slumber


    Wonderful lines for the most beautiful and loving creature on the earth. A great tribute written with purity of heart and soul. Thank you for sharing.

    Regards, Kamran

    There is no substitute of a mother's love in this world. Any word about mothers is great.
