A Mother's Love
by Adri Sinclair
A mother's love is not only in her heart,
but attached to every nerve in her body.
It not only runs through her mind,
but also through the blood in her veins.
A mother's love is not a gift;
it is a necessity,
cultivated from a tiny seed of joy,
that she willingly devotes all her time to.
A mother's love is not a jewel, not shiny at all,
but an old rag, they're for everyday and
everywhere usage, with the
added respect and honor.
A mother's love is not only for her own,
but for all other's.
It is in the understanding, and the sharing,
it is for the whole world to enjoy.
A mother's love is nothing special,
yet, every bit just that.
It is not a deed, a kindness or such,
it is a wisdom and knowledge,
and it is an honor and joy.
It is a burden that she gladly and peacefully
A mother's love is more than you can imagine, or
that words can tell...
A mother's love is...
