Sweet benediction

A PERFECT BENEDICTION

 

God took things like gentleness,

True selflessness and love,

And patience and devotion,

Then He blessed them from above.

 

He added love of nurturing

And other virtues, too,

Then he grouped them all together,

And still was not quite through.

 

He needed someone special

In whom He could depend,

To keep intact these attributes

Of such a perfect blend.

 

As He watched women cradling

Infants to their breast

He instilled within their hearts,

These things He deemed the best.

 

A perfect benediction,

One unlike no other –

Then satisfied, He smiled, and said,

“Let mankind call her, Mother.”
