Mother's Love - Poem by Michael Olakunle Adesanya

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappointments
And calm all of our fears.

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we have dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.

There are times when only a Mother's faith
Can help us on life's way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.

For a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith
And a Mother's steadfast love
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above.

    A found this on the table after my son had gone to work. He knows I've been hurting. There is no cure. He's autistic but wiser and kinder than so many so called normal people.He sees the world from his place and has given me so many new perspectives.. God Bless him. My Richard (Report) Reply
