Mothers are marvelous beings they can see from in front and behind
They know what their child is doing almost all of the time.
They are caring, compassionate, cuddly and fun
Only grumpy and grouchy when having to run.
Their smiles are so warm meaning a million words
Of love and affection and you are so heard.
They believe and have hope in most difficult times
Hearing the night clock through all its shortest chimes.
They rejoice and celebrate in victories won
And they’re there for the bad times and working through sums.
They are constantly busy and never sit down
Except when they’re visiting friends or at the Dentist’s in town.
They glory in triumph and weep for defeat
And make sure your clothes are tidy and neat.
They are marvelous cooks and even when not
Food is flavored with love as it comes from the pot.
They are happy and kind in the midst of a storm
And can see in your soul if you’re feeling forlorn.
Mothers are wonderful as you can see
God made them that way for you and for me.
