A Mama's heart can surely break
When a baby is taken from her heart,
Her loving heart shall sadly weep
While struggling on life's path,
As her heart of care is sorely torn
In the mothering to make.

With sweet heart-beats so deep within
She loves, unto the giving of her all,
There's no-where else she'd rather be
Than battling through the gathering storm,
In the sacrifice the more
For this miracle of life she bore,
To pray without ceasing
For sunshine blessing
On her beloved child to fall.

Yet, she so desires to open up their world
And introduce them to it's call,
Though still to hold them close....
When undetected, almost too suddenly
Without warning,
One day they will just be grown too tall.,
And somehow break that mothering cord.

But, while at times they will be strong
Striking out for independence all alone,
Quietly they will return again
Just wanting to be known.

The struggle for both to be
As emotion tears and mends,
A life-long adventure to carry
For her heart-beat never ends.

Though a mother may hold your hand
for a little while
she shall hold your heart forever.
