Mother Of Pearl

Mother Of Pearl

At first I knew my mother's love
as pearl enveloped in a shell
and if you asked to know her ways
I'd look back to childhood days
to all her character and wit
and how she shaped me from raw grit.

So then to sum it all
and in memory recall
that as a child I was fed
and she tucked me into bed,
fussed at me when I was bad,
kissed me when I made her glad.
If I should of my mother tell,
I would say, she loved me well.
