Mother’s love … beauty of great excellence Virtuous midst legacy’s prevalence The best of human’s care-superlative Expressing sublime kind heart’s directive. Mom’s warm, sweet caress --- graciously tender Soothes child, whether victim or offender… Her embrace, ensuring hugs’ approval Turns failures into triumph-upheaval. Mama’s voice, gentle with truth’s assertion Calls for guilt-admission and confession Smile from her lips showcases bliss-delight Glowing along blessed serenity’s light. Mother’s love: wondrous treasure to cherish God's good gift* shared... does greatly flourish.
*James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

beautiful doesn't realize the importance of a mother's love at times in life until she is forever gone!
