Monalisas in their own lives,
Often smiling when the tide is high.
Tenderly embracing every step of the way,
Hurricane forces when it’s time to protect.
Especially a blessing in times of distress…
“Ruining our lives” when the teens arrive,
Soberly “right” when mature we are.
Motherhood is a vocation of wins and losses,
Never content with a hand of trophies…
But the hope of happiness for their own, and their own,
Happy day to all mothers, all around the globe.
