In LOVE she conceived of you.
With JOY carried you.
And with PRIDE birthed you.

In LOVE she always conceives of you.
With JOY carried within.
And with PRIDE born of who you are.

In LOVE always conceive of yourself and others.
With JOY be carried through life.
And with PRIDE in who you are
Be the true expression
Of this mother's heart.

    The piece is filled with LOVE. That's how it ought to be at this season of the year. This is a poem, though, for ALL seasons. Big luck in the contest. Love, Dave
