Mother to Mother

Tis a universal bond
We share with each other
A non-scripted empathy
Mother to mother

This bond is tempered
With blood, prayer and tears
It threads across oceans
And borders and years

It clutches our pulses
We know each other
Through the beautiful angst
Of being a mother

Mutual devotion
Bent on love’s greater good
As we share the bond
Of motherhood

Tis a common bond
We understand each other
In a universal kinship
Mother to mother
