A MOTHER'S LOVE


A Mother's love is something


that no on can explain,


It is made of deep devotion


and of sacrifice and pain,


It is endless and unselfish


and enduring come what may


For nothing can destroy it


or take that love away . . .


It is patient and forgiving


when all others are forsaking,


And it never fails or falters


even though the heart is breaking . . .


It believes beyond believing


when the world around condemns,


And it glows with all the beauty


of the rarest, brightest gems . . .


It is far beyond defining,


it defies all explanation,


And it still remains a secret


like the mysteries of creation . . .


A many splendoured miracle


man cannot understand


And another wondrous evidence


of God's tender guiding hand.
