For Mother’s Day



What price would you put on a mother’s care?

For without your Mum, you wouldn’t be here

All helpless at birth, you arrived on this earth

Drawing your first breath of air


More work began then, for your dear Ma

If she was lucky, she was helped by Pa

Mum cleaned and fed, she made your bed

Loving you just as you are


Safe in her arms, the world held at bay

Teaching and nurturing you every day

You’d struggle to thrive, or even survive

Without her to show you the way


Think now how it was for her in that past

Back in a time that could not last

Mum did her best, she passed every test

As she watched you grow up, just too fast
