A Mother's Work (Nonet)


Their invisible bond never ends
Life cord that ties child to mother
Love connects, as she attends
Unselfish tender care
Child grows maturing
The bond is there
Character
Growing
Strength.

    This is a lovely poem, detailing a Mother's love for her child, starting off in the womb and tapering into a bond of a Mother's love for her adult child. (Report) Reply
