A Mother's Love

A mother's love should be forever and prevail to no end

On her endless love, her child can always depend

 

After conception, she will labor in pain

To bring forth her child, new life to gain

 

Consistently and continuously sacrifices she  will make 

For her child, she does whatever it will take 

 

As a child, their scrapes, cuts and bruises she will tend 

Hurt feelings and broken hearts with laughter she will try to mend

 

She catches them or picks them up when they fall

She's always there for them when they call

 

Unto her teenager, she should be one of their best friends

For them to talk, listen and confide their feelings deep within

 

She should be open, honest and she should not criticize

With them she should comfort, empathize and sometimes

sympathize

 

Now that her child is grown, she should not pretend

How a mother's love still does not end

 

How she bears their burdens and cry tears unseen

Her shoulders are still strong enough on which they can lean 

 

A mother's love should be forever and prevail to no end 

On her endless love, her child can always depend.
