infant’s snivel!
can be put down
in many ways,
in different languages,
but no more than mother
could comprehend its needs,
no more than mother!
mother milks child!
mother plays with child!
mother embraces child!
oh god!
impossible to tell apart, 
the same yell,
let know mother 
the different needs of it!
noble and sublime!
an exalted state.

    Every mother can relate to the words you have written. Yes, it is tough but so worth it. Children are a gift. Nice job

    yes, a woman has to be a saint to put up with all the crying. MY kids gave me no peace for the first year of their lives. I enjoyed this one. Btw, what country are you from?
