Amanda is a keeper of the flame,

Mistress of the house and of the ring;

A passionate giver, who knows well the shame

Needing someone silently can bring.

Don't pity her for her self-sacrifice:

Amanda knows her joys, and pays the price.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this small poem cause the name amanda is my mothers name and it means exactly the way my mum is.
