A Mother's Love

Written by: Kim Merryman

A mother's love:
    is a warm embrace.
        It is bed-time stories,
           and pancakes for breakfast.

A mother's love:
    is kissing a boo-boo,
        making the hurt all better,
            with a cookie and a hug.

A mother's love:
    encourages what is good,
        discourages what is bad,
           and always forgives.

A mother's love:
    is unconditional,

A mother's love:
    is all encompassing.
       It's a cozy snuggle,
          on a cold winter's day.
