Mother's Day Poem: Love has a gentle grace

A Poem by Michael R. Burch

Love has a gentle grace
by Michael R. Burch

for Beth on Mother’s Day

Love has a gentle grace; you have not seen her
unless you’ve looked into your mother’s eyes
and seen her faith
serene, composed and wise
that you’re the center of her very being
(as once, indeed, she carried you inside.)

Love has no wilder beauty than the thought
that you’re the best of all she ever sought.

(And if, perhaps, you don’t believe my song,
can your mother be wrong?)

Your Gift
by Michael R. Burch

for Beth

Counsel, console. 
This is your gift. 
Calm, kiss and encourage. 
Tenderly lift 
each world-wounded heart 
from its fatal dart. 
Mend every rift. 
Bid pain, “Depart!”
Save every sorrow 
for your own untaught heart.
