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...Mothers Tears

More precious than the gold

In all the shiny medals

Of Heroes...brave and bold


A Mother's Tears forever

Undimmed by grief and years

Never tarnish...never fade

"God's Diamonds"...a Mother's Tears.
