What be a mother

A mother be a flower
Within the heart of every child.
When ever she be needed
She be waiting with a smile,
Or with a sympathetic look
If there's pain, even a trace.
A rose, she be so tender
With a glow upon her face.

We need her with her softness
To wash away salt tears. 
To soothe away our phantoms,
And all those childish fears.
She be gentle, she be loving
But she'd gladly stand and fight
If one of hers was in a fix,
She'd fight with all her might.

It's such a thing of  beauty 
This love a mother gives
To the child who will be of her
For as long as she may live.
When A mother enters heaven
She'll rest then come again
With a team of holy angels
To help folk through their pain.
