Accidental Poet

A Mother’s Heart


God’s gift of life

Through the heart of a Mother

From whom we all came from

There can be no other


Your life began with her

The smiling face looking at you

The soft voice you hear

Pledging her heart so true


No more perfect than anyone else

For everyone makes mistakes

But no one loves you like her

Even if between you a distant space


And as a child grows old

They always look back to the start

A personal jewel for all

A Mother’s heart

      AP, you expressed it so lovingly and beautifully. I think the most enduring love in this world is the love of a mother for her child.

      • Accidental Poet

        Fred, I'll second that. ; ) Thanks.
