Profound Beauty of Love - Mother!

A mothers love determines how,
Great a man you are now.
You showed me the bright Sun,
And taught me “Life is simply fun”
You showed me the star, that is up so far,
And wanted to me shine, even if at war.

Your Kiss was the best,
When I was dreary –without zest,
I was five when I threw the food you gave me,
I was fifteen when I drew your money,
I was twenty-five and thought was grown,
I’m forty now yet vent and frown!
And you still love me as your precious own!

Before I was grown you made me with Patience and Discipline,
After I thought I’d grown, you still make me with Love and tears,
And by showering love with all your might,
You made me realize that all in the world is right!!

I wonder why “Love” is four letters,
And “Mother” is five letters,
Coz you “R” my dear mom one step more- than the Greatest Love!!!
