Lovely Mothers

Lovely Mothers love their children
They have such high hopes
For the future of their child
Desiring to be a good example
Their manner is usually mild

Lovely Mothers kiss their children
And tuck them in at night
Washing laundry while they sleep
And cleaning with all their might

Lovely Mothers cook the best
And feed their children’s friends
The kitchen is a busy place
Where meetings never end

Lovely Mothers have lovely homes
They are so organized
They may even grow a garden
And win a Blue Ribbon Prize

Lovely Mothers lose their children
To crimes and wars and drugs
It’s hard for Lovely Mothers to be
Understanding when they fear death
They want to feed their children
And all the money has been spent
They’re weak from fighting
To live a normal life
But when you’re beaten, raped
And mutilated
All you have is strife
How do they feed their children
With no money, little time and only love?
They are withering away themselves
In a corner, they have been shoved
No food for children
No nice clean clothes
Hardly a roof over their heads
No nice warm blankets
House slippers or pillow
There isn’t even a bed

There are many Lovely Mothers
Who wish it could be different
But they’ll never see that truth
Before life starts, it’s already ended
Some have limbs missing
As rebels have cut them down
But they would gladly die in pieces
If their children could be safely found
Lovely Mothers don’t have food
And they sure don’t have much pleasure
They have a faint glimmer of hope
Which is indeed their only treasure
It’s not the dress she doesn’t have
Or the knowledge taught in school
It’s about the love she feels
Within her heart
To be a servant and others rule
It’s about being there until you die
And helping your child to be
The One who may be able
To make many others free
She does her best with what she has
And puts it down in blood
There is no higher calling
Than a Lovely Mother’s Love……..
