And That Is Why

Children sleep.

Moms cry.

Moms lie awake nights.

That is why.


Children hunger.

Moms cry.

Moms work several chores.

That is why.


Children question.

Moms cry.

Moms know her child's thoughts.

That is why.


Children argue.

Moms cry.

Moms have softer hearts.

That is why.


Children tempted.

Moms cry.

Moms love their children.

That is why.


Children in sin.

Moms cry.

Moms have more wisdom.

That is why.


Children troubled.

Moms cry

pleading with Jesus.

That is why.


Children busy.

Moms cry.

Moms miss them so much.

That is why.


Children absent.

Moms cry

alone in the 'home'.

That is why.


And that is why

God's love can touch.

He sent His Son

who suffered much.


We're children, all -

sinners, mankind.

Confess, repent -

then seek to find.


Moms and children

hug and cry.

Jesus saves

and that is why.
