 Ave Mater!      

by Natalie Gorna     


Who gave me life?     

Who knows me best?     

Who guides me through strife?     

Who passes life’s tests?     


Who shaped my soul?     

Who cares for me?     

Whom do I know,     

Who sets me free?     


She has seen me grow,     

Seeds of wisdom she sows.  

Understanding and kind,     

Ties of blood and heart bind,     

A noble Mommy and I.     


She is called by many names,     

But her value remains the same.
