A Mother's Love

It's a soft breeze on a muggy day,
A gentle comfort when you've gone a bad way.
It's knowing the difference between truth and lie,
And being encouraged always to try.
It's the celebratory smile when you reach a goal,
And the understanding glance when you feel like a fool.
It's the shelter you get because of a storm,
And the freedom that's given to fly on your own.
It's the uncomparable friendship; a gift from above,
And it can only be... a mother's love.
When a mother's love is all you need.
