Tender Touch™

There are so many different feelings,
But none that can compare
Between the love of mother and child,
With Her tender touch and her care.

As a child growing up
Her hand is there for you.
In your adolescent years they’ll reach
To guide and to soothe.

Someday when you are all grown up
Her hands will let you go.
But her tender touch will always be
The encouragement it took to grow.

The gift of a mother’s heart,
The hand that gave so much,
Will be there in your memories
With the warmth of her touch.
