To the Hand that Rocks the Cradle

19 May

A Mother and no other....

She tirelessly wakes up at the wee hours of nigh
To feed crying babies at her bossom.
With her loving arms wrapped around you
Consoling you of your tears and fears.

She watches you with an eagles eye
As you learn to walk and run
So that no harms way may befall you
Thus you take your wee adventurous step one by one.

She nurtures you day and night
With calming and kind words she teaches
She just knows how to say the right things to you
When things are in disarray as you grow up.

The first one to know
Of your heart flips and butterflies in stomachs
And a shoulder to cry on from heartaches to a failing grade
A Mother and no other.

A cry of despair from sickness to the deathbed
A mother’s love is unfathomable
A soldiers cry up to the last hurrah
A gift from God to live up to this time.
Unconditional love she provides.

A MOTHER like no other.
An angel in disguise.
A nurturing wonder
Of a hand that rocks the cradle
To a tear that drops to a coffin where you are laid to rest.
A mother and no other.

    Your poem is a beautiful tribute to a mother . The words just re-inforce the depth of a mother’s love . It is really wondrous and sometimes hard to explain …
