Are you Motherly?



By Richard Bryden


Are you a mother, or are you motherly?
This question may seem strange and bizarre
But don’t hit out at me.
Being a mother does not require much
For all that mature egg needs
Is for a sperm to come and touch,
Life is then motioned into existence
The miracle of birth, through a natural process

To be motherly requires care and affection
True devotion, guidance and protection
To be there during hardships, trials and pain
Triumphs, victories, successes and any conceivable gain

Being motherly transcends the confines of her maternal role
She lends, she thinks, she shares, she skimps
She’s always in control

Motherliness goes beyond the call of duty
To provide for her children’s needs
Even if that child is the doer of a good or wrongful deed

And when at last her youthfulness passes
Way beyond her youth
Her loving kindness is never surpassed
It runs deep within her roots

Then through her eyes the world survives
To live another day
And when the trials come our way
We know she’ll watch and pray

Her smile, her warmth, her love so calm
May move our storm clouds away
Then we realize our greatest prize
Will leave us soon one day

Mothers, dear mothers
Let love, peace and poise run steep
Please let good virtues prevail
For the epitome of being a good MOM
Is to let your motherliness reign
