A Mother's Tears

Marsha Burks Megehee
A Mother's Tears were shed today
For a battle long ago
Her precious gift to a warrior son
Whose fate she'll never know

Not Heroes shiny medals
For courage through their fears
No ribboned badge of honor
Can match a Mother's Tears

A Mother's Tears are courage
A Mother's Tears are hope
For the babe once at her bosom
Led away in a captive's rope

Her badge of honor-Mother's Tears
More precious than the gold
In all the shiny medals
Of warriors brave and bold

A Mother's Tears forever
Undimmed by grief and years
Never tarnish- never fade
God's Diamonds- A Mother's Tears.
