She: A Mother

She laughs when you smile
She mourns when you cry
She listens when no one else does
She’ll run with you even in sickness
Climb the mountains during the storm
She’s a shed, whenever needed
Always there to stay
Anytime of the day

A light to our home
She’s a saint to her child
A monster when provoke
When her brood is in distress
Call her what you want
Mom, mama, by her name
It doesn't matter,
Come what may
She’ll always be
A mother.
