It started out so simply
As her child grew, this love grew,
She didn’t know how binding this tie had become

A mother is a potter, molding a piece of human clay
A mother is an artist, trying to bring out on living
A mother is a physician, whose most effective medication

A mother is God’s hand. He loves and cares for His
For all this she is paid – not in money,
