Note to recorder:

This is a poem by Michael O. Adesanya that my daughter's teacher picked for her to perform on a stage on the coming Mother's day. Please help us learn the right and natural way to read this poem.

There are times only when a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappointments
And calm all our fears.

There are times when only a Mother's Love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we've dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.

There are times when only a Mother's faith
Can help on life's way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.

For a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith
And a Mother's steadfast love
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above...

God bless my wonderful mother and I love you mother.

Hi! The first line as you posted it didn't make sense in English (with "only" before "when") so I Googled the poem, and it appears that that was a typo, so I went ahead and fixed it.

Hello! Thank you so much. This is perfect! We have about 10 days for the preparation.

Thank you for the corrections too.

My apologies for interrupting, but given the interchangeable nature of the English language, to place "only" before "when" does actually make sense in English, however if it's actually incorrect in the context of the poem then consider this comment irrelevant.

Good luck with your performance!
