Happy Mother’s Day

My mom in silhouette

Portrait of Motherhood

A portrait of motherhood
Working day and night
No rest in sight
Keeping children content
Oftentimes overlooked

Making everything right
A portrait of motherhood
To persevere despite
Who answers the call
Often times overlooked

Ready at a moment’s notice
To correct any slight
A portrait of motherhood
Who is this white knight
Oftentimes overlooked

She is cook, nurse, maid
Moving at the speed of light
Who carries this might
A portrait of motherhood
Oftentimes overlooked

Working day and night
Oftentimes overlooked
Keeping children content
No rest in sight
A portrait of motherhood
