How can we fathom a mother's love? Unless we have gone through the rigid duties, routines and the sacrifices of a mother, we won't be able to understand what it takes and how to be one. As Thailand celebrates Mother's Day, here's a beautiful poetry from Ellen Bailey Poems, a fitting tribute to all the mothers here and around the globe.


A Mother's love is something
that no one can explain, 
It is made of deep devotion 
and of sacrifice and pain

It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it 
or take that love away

It is patient and forgiving 
when all others are forsaking, 
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking

It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems

It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret 
like the mysteries of creation

A many splendor miracle 
man cannot understand 
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.

Happy Mothers' Day, Thailand!
