A mother’s love
A mother’s love 
is perfect and pure,
as she is so selfless
that pains and sufferings 
she will always endure.
Look at her simple heart,
so loving
at the very point of 
our life start.
No love on earth can surpass
a mother’s love
which is a true blessing
from heaven above.
She is sometimes gentle
like a sweet dove,
but strong like a lion,
when her small ones 
are threatened without doubt.
Selfless love is obvious
in her words
and in her touch.
We can easily see it
when we are not always
thinking about ourselves
that much.
