A Mother's Tears

How many tears does a mother cry?
I think too many for anyone to count.
A mother cries when her child is born.
She cries of joy, because now she has 
someone to love and someone to hold.

When that child gets sick, a mother cries
until that child gets better, that aliviates
her heart. When that child grows up and 
goes wrong, a mother cries tears that come 
from the soul and heart.

Does a mother ever stop crying? No - a
mother will cry through out  her life. She
will cry for that child that has gone worng.
A mother always wants the best for her 
child. Sometimes it dosn't happen and a
mother cries in silence.

Her soul is wet from tears that fell like rain.
She has no rest night or day. Sometimes a
mother cries of joy too. She wants to die 
before her child, if not - a mother will cry 
more tears until she leaves this world. This
time - she has no more tears.

    Thank you very much for your kind words. I only have one child, but one child alone can give us all the problems we need. Happy Easter. Lucilla

    Lucilla, I think I am not a great example of a model mother. I feel bad when things go wrong with my kids, but I don't cry alot over it. I think in many ways, I act a lot like a dad! Just a shoulder for them to cry on and offer them advice. This is sweet. I bet you are a mom? Luv, Andrea and happy EAster.

    Thanks for reading, but none of us knew how to be mothers. We learn as we go along. We improve with age. Lucilla

    How right you are, and thank goodness a mother cares enough to weep when her children are in difficulty. I guess you are a mom and know what you are talking about.
