How Many Kisses

 

How many dinners

has she prepared

how many toys broken

has she repaired

 

How many washings

of our dirty clothes

how many patches

sewn over worn holes

 

How many hurts

soothed by her loving care

how many heartaches

kindly repaired

 

How many kisses

has she given to soothe

how many hugs

to fend off the blues

 

How many kind words

has she given away

how much good counsel

given out in a day

 

How does it happen

a mother always knows

how is it Love is

what she always bestows.

I am quite sure all mothers would love this just as much as all children would like to extol these words to their mothers . Nicely said

You paint the picture of the ideal mother and do so in a well constructed poem.
