So, what is a mother?

The dictionary says “One who gives birth to a child”

But really that is just the beginning

A mother then becomes a Mum.

A mum, in turn, becomes a primeval creature,

One who will do anything to protect its child.

She becomes a nurse, protector, fighter of battles

She is the one you run to

When you skin your knees,

When a friend calls you a name

When a boyfriend dumps you for another.

She is the one who celebrates your successes

And holds your hand when you fail.

She is the one person who never fails you

Never judges you

Loves you unconditionally.

So, next time someone asks you

“What is a Mother?”

You can tell them,

She is the centre of her child’s Universe.
