A poem for Mother’s Day.

If I could give you diamonds,
For each tear you cried for me.
If I could give you sapphires,
For each truth you’ve helped me see.
If I could give you rubies,
For the heartache that you’ve known.
If I could give you pearls,
For the wisdom that you’ve shown.
Then you’ll have a treasure, mother,
That would mount up to the skies.
That would almost match,
The sparkle in your kind and loving eyes.
But I have no pearls, no diamonds,
As I’m sure you’re well aware.
So I’ll give you gifts more precious:
My devotion, love and care.
