Mother's Love is Unparalelled. A Dedication to Mother's on Mother's Day, UK Plus ..
There is a rare diamond in the heart of Mother,
That draws from the energy of the sun.
And so when life is sweat and the waves are tossing,
Mother, like a good vessel, anchors well,
On the turbulence of time.
Like a mirror, She always remains awake,
Never able to close her eyes; constantly reflecting
The needs of Her children.
Drawing from the master canvas of the crescent moon,
She has found a haven, to escape from toil.
Sometimes, life’s vicissitudes are choppy; murky …
But She has become the wave, to steer the course of the tide.
The joy of Mother is unbounded; the heart does not sleep.
Instead, she brings tears from the joy of childbirth,
As a balm shared by the Unknowable.
Mother says: “You are my son, my daughter; my offering.
My stars, my sun; my charm and Delight …”
The loss of the moon brings darkness,
But the jewel of a birth, pervades Mother’s rapture
With boundless Bliss.
An epitome of sacrifice, Mother bends like the yielding tree.
A benchmark of giving; bleeding and of Love.
Bearing all as patiently as Job himself,
She becomes as malleable as clay,
Adjusting to the twists and turnings, of life’s sojourn.
Behind every good man is a great woman;
Behind every baby,
Is the birth of sweet sacrifice, or unconditional Love.
