Greater love has no other,

than that of a mother,

who nine months carries us in her womb

and in her heart, to the shadow of the tomb

Greater love

than God above

She suffers our pains, forgives our sins

kisses us as each morning begins,

From our birth,

a guardian angel on earth

A piece of her each is given,

to carry us back to the gates of heaven

      Thanks Orchi appreciate the review and comment. With all the diversity in this world I'm surprised that Christmas and Easter are not celebrated on different days around the world.... oh yea there is the Greek Orthodox difference.
