Mother's Children

Viewed before a mothers eyes
forever a child in her embrace
From swaddled dreams and lullabies
years pass beyond the cradle’s lace

In ardent heart her children dwell
time is forgotten in mother's care
Aging shadows and streaks of gray
she offers no less love to share

In youth were cuddled babes to breast
undaunted memories for seasons gone
Sometimes a tear from hidden face
falls with an image of yesterday's dawn

Laughter of children from fondest dreams
whisk her away to longed places of lure
A moment’s weep sanctioned with smile
reminds us her love will always endure

Viewed before a mother’s eyes
beloved children never grow old
To all she offers lulling comfort
cradled in arms that never unfold
