Mother's Love

Once the child comes,
Mother's out of strength,
But her soul aligned with her baby,
That's mother's love

The teen begins different journeys,
From strange emotions to callous actions,
But mother judges only potential and strength,
That's mother's love,

Then the tables turn,
The adult takes care of mother,
But she still calls by child,
That's mother's love,

Child grows older and witnesses mother's death,
He washes her body and smells her scent,
Welcoming her unmatched fragrance he says,
"That's mother's love".
