A Mother Knows What She Has

by Cara at Cara's Poetry Cove

She sees in her children
what other's can't see,
when to tame the spirit
when to set it free,

she sees the character
like no one can
and sees when a boy
turns into a man,

others may judge
and tell her she's wrong
but she hears when her girl
begins a young woman's song,

nothing should rush
a mother's judgment so true,
for she knows what she has
and she knows what to do,

sometimes she'll doubt,
and sometimes she'll cry,
and think that there's
nothing left she can try,

but sure as we live
and sure as we breathe
children will grow
into more than we perceive.
