A Mothers Love

by Thomas K. Hunt

Twenty visits in twenty years
Each visit beginning with happy tears
Two hearts together under the same sky
That loving look in a mothers eyes

A mothers love is endless
She'd die so you could live
Her love is unconditional
She gives all she can give

There is a saying "you only have one mother"
Nothing could be more true
You came from her, there is no other
She's a part of you

You're in her mind every day of the year
It doesn't matter if you're far or near
You're a thought in from the blue
A warm smile as she thinks of you

Separation is the hardest thing between a mother and her child
She knew when the time came her child would have to run wild

Leave the nest and fly away
Learn how to make their own way
All she can do is hope and pray
She does that every day

Long distant joys that traveled many miles
Pictures with letters she knew would bring a smile
I was blessed every day of the year knowing mother was here

Every Sunday her phone would ring
Oh, the joy those calls would bring
I knew she'd want to know everything
Patiently waiting for her phone to ring

To hear her laughter and share the tears
Filling in those twenty years
Each time harder to say goodbye
Sometimes I'd hang up and cry

Oh the joy her memory brings
Her love and comfort
Her everything
when she was just a call away
I miss those times everyday

Twenty visits in twenty years
Each visit ending with sorrowful tears
Two hurting hearts having to say goodbye
remembering the last look in each others eyes
