Special Love


They are special 
With a love essential
They and only they are endowed 
With the amazing biology of giving birth 
And the natural ability to breast-feed to satisfaction 

They are special
With a love essential
They and only they are the world`s 
Mothers and grandmothers and sisters 
Who can care and love better than a mother?

They are special
With a love essential
They and only they have love that knows
No time, hardship, distance, disability or old age
Because a mother`s love is the epitome of perseverance

    I just read what Mike said to you. He is right in that archaic English is not something publishers want to see. but of course we can understand what you were saying.

    Andrea, thank you for the piece of advice. Now l see what he was referring to. Stone Age terminology wont endear me to publishers, you are right. Point taken. This is honest critiquing l expect. THANKS!

    You have a lovely hum in your writing .... .and this piece is very well balanced....the repetition is infectious. You know Ndaba...I'm not sure that "inartificial" is an English word....but never mind.... now it is for me......Great writing. M
