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.
