Nobody knows of the work it makes
To keep the home together,
Nobody knows of the steps it takes,
Nobody knows-but Mothers.
Nobody listens to childish woes
Which kisses only heal,
Nobody pained by naughty blows,
Nobody knows of sleepless care
Bestowed on baby brother,
Nobody knows of the tender Prayer,
Nobody knows of the lessons taught
Of loving one another,
Nobody knows of patience sought,
Nobody knows of anxious fears
Lest darlings may not weather
The storm of life in after years,
Nobody knows-but Mother.
Nobody kneels at the throne above
To thank the Heavenly Father
For the sweetest gift-a Mother's Love.
Nobody can-but Mother.
