A Voice Sweeter Than Angels

By JP Leddy

No voice is sweeter not even those of angels

Then the sound of a mother to her son

Whether to soothe or to correct

It travels thru air and becomes living

In a man’s heart from birth until grave

His mother, his anchor, his life

Leading him through the pinnacles of success

And through the battles where fear grips him

Her voice, her arms, her unconditional love

Keeps him standing where he needs to be

Despite the few thank you’s that have passed his lips

The lack of phone calls and visits and cards

She remains unwavering as she did before his birth

With that love that knows no beginning and no end

As she will when that day comes when he looks up

And he goes towards the light and hears her voice

“Come home my son, I am here.”
