Nobody Knows...

Nobody knows of the work it makes
To keep the home together,

Nobody knows of the steps it takes,
Nobody knows--but mother.

Nobody listens to childish woes,
Which kisses only smother;

Nobody's pained by naughty blows,
Nobody--only mother.

Nobody knows of the sleepless care
Bestowed on baby brother;

Nobody knows of the tender prayer,
Nobody--only mother.

Nobody knows of the lessons taught
Of loving one another;

Nobody knows of the patience sought,
Nobody--only mother.

Nobody knows of the anxious fears,
Lest darlings may not weather

The storm of life in after years,
Nobody knows--but mother.

Nobody kneels at the throne above
To thank the Heavenly Father

For that sweetest gift--a mother's love;
Nobody can--but mother.

Hee,hee... When I saw your title I immediately finished in my head, "...the trouble I've seen, nobody knows my sorrows..." LOL

Sometimes those are my parenting sentiments! Thankfully there are many sweet times to toss in with all the difficult ones. :)
