A Mother's Love

A mother's love- is a powerful force-
It possesses great depth- and knows no remorse.
It can't be bought, sold, or duplicated-
It almost can't be described- it's THAT complicated.

A mother's love can heal, teach and thrill-
And if her child is threatened? Yes, it could kill.
It could be a hug, or a kiss, or a smile-
One thing about a mother's love- always in style!

It has a spirit- and has great soul-
A mother's love will guide, lead, and mold (shape).
It is not refundable- and carries no tax-
In fact, it's free- no worries- relax.

It changes diapers, cleans and cooks-
It cannot be learned from simple books.
If you search the dictionary- it won't be found-
But try to live without it- you would be bound.

Now, one last thing, about a mother's love-
It only comes in one size- but fits like a glove.
Its size is determined by what's in her heart-
NEVER degrade it- it one of GOD'S arts.
