Only A Mother - Poem by Sarita Milliner

Only a mother, can love you sight unseen,
From the moment of conception,
To your first whaling scream;
 
Only a mother, in her steadfast way,
Can nurture you through the innocent years,
Right up to your wedding day;
 
Only a mother, so sweet, so strong, so fair,
Will help fight your battles,
And leave you without a care;
 

Only a mother, in spite of all things,
Will give you unconditional love,
From your beginning,
Until she takes her wings;
