Mother's Day Kiss



"Kissing makes it better," sweet words on mother's lips.
Magical helpfulness for scratches, cuts and rips.

"Kissing makes it better," conflict ameliorate.
Restore kind harmony, difference conciliate.

"Kissing makes it better," generic, healing balm.
For life's busy bustle, a soothing peace and calm.

"Kissing makes it better," to dry-out every tear.
Comfort when it's scary, eliminating fear.

"Kissing makes it better," mend the heart-breaking wound.
Listen with deep caring, in sympathy attuned.

"Kissing makes it better," a touching expression.
Warm and hearty greeting with tender affection.

"Kissing makes it better," remember mother's day.
The time is appointed: second Sunday in May.
