What a journey, what a ride
From the first moment of conception
To the day of birth, and beyond
Motherhood is a beautiful song

The weight of responsibility
Can sometimes feel like a boulder
But with every coo and smile
A mother's heart swells with pride

The sleepless nights and endless days
Of diaper changes and feeding times
Are nothing compared to the joy
Of holding a tiny life in your arms

From the first steps to the first words
A mother watches her child grow
And though the journey is not always smooth
Love always finds a way to shine through

Motherhood is a journey of sacrifice
Of giving your all for another life
It's a journey that's both beautiful and tough
But a mother's love is more than enough

So here's to all the mothers out there
The ones who work tirelessly every day
May your love and sacrifice never go unnoticed
And may you always find joy along the way.
