A Mother’s love is like nothing else…
A blanket of warmth, a security blanket keeping you safe
A blanket that sometimes ends up dragging on the floor
A corner of the blanket pressed into your eye.
It’s a blanket of love that always can be found
It’s in every room,
On every couch, bed and chair.
It’s always wrapped around your shoulders when in time of need
And sitting under your feet giving you support.
There’s a blanket for every different house, apartment and room.
Each blanket giving the same warmth to the touch
When each blanket is put together, bit by bit
A quilt is made…each piece keeping you safe.
This quilt is built as a new blanket; is needed in your life
through times of trouble, happiness and sorrow.
A blanket keeps you warm and spirits high.
There’s no need for hot chocolate or warm coffee
All you need is a blanket covering your cold feet.
When all is said and done
You will always have this quilt of love.
A quilt made of blankets from your life.
Made from your Mother’s love, always keeping you warm.
You may not always appreciate this wonderful quilt.
You may find it too hot sometimes
It may be too itchy or rough
You may misplace this quilt from time to time
Forgetting to pack it on long trips;
But this quilt never leaves your shoulders.
A new blanket will meet you wherever you go
keeping you warm, happy and safe,
Because all that this quilt is made of is blankets.
A quilt made of blankets from every twist and turn in your life.
A Mother’s quilt…
A Mother’s love is like a quilt.
Always keeping you warm when you’re cold.
