A Mother's Love

A Mother's love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendoured miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.

Your poem has moved me like never before. A story so shocking I'm numb to my core. You share with the world this most horrible crime. And then tell it all with impeccable rhyme. I feel your outrage, your horror and strife. I hope you have somehow moved on with your life. The cross that you carry must weigh several ton. At age fifteen life has just barely begun. Sincerely I wish you the best of the best Perhaps in a way it was one awful test. If you can still write out this story that sings you know you can handle whatever life brings.
