Mother

In Poetry on May 15, 2012 at 6:12 pm

Oh ‘Mother,’ what’s in the name?
Of course quick to mind is fame.

As we all know by far
You are the shining star!

To add we cannot forget kindness,
Nor gentleness and thoughtfulness,

As much as the human heart can hold
So are these that the name beholds.

Until a woman bears a seed
So these emotions have no title or deed?

Yet upon the birth, a woman becomes a mother,
There is a burst of all these together.

Whereas the mother releases from the heart,
All that God’s given – Oh what a start!

To receive too small to mention,
There is no other in contention.

For the name ‘Mother’ means simply to love.
Indeed, God instills it from above.

And so we write line for line,
This little poem that comes to mind.

But it also comes from the heart and soul.
To again be recited and told.
