A Mother’s Love

A Mother’s Love runs deep
More profound than her child will ever know
It isn’t until her daughter holds her own
Will she possibly comprehend the meaning of love

I never truly knew how my mother felt about me
Until I held my son
It was at that moment I understood
Just how much she cared

We finally shared a bond
So common, yet so miraculous
I looked to her for guidance
And she gave it to me without judgement

Her kind words and advice
Came quickly to reality
She was my mentor and my friend
Without her I was lost

So many times she had gone
Above and beyond the call of a mother
I wanted to say, “Thank You”
And convey how grateful I was

For everything she had done
Not just while I was a mother
But especially for when
I was her daughter.
