Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day, Mother
Unlike you there is no other,
You gave me life and a home and a yard
And all that I gave you, was a card.

You have combed and also cut my hair
You bought me my clothes to wear,
You also taught me right from wrong
With a family, I did belong.

The wrinkles that are now upon your face
Each and every one I wish I could erase,
And the gray hair that's on your head
Was created by the words, that I had said.

You were always there at my side
Even when I was alone, and I cried,
To church you took me and we read psalm;
You are my loving mom.

Though I have made many bad mistakes
You still made me my birthday cakes,
And when I told you that you I would never miss
You still gave me a hug, and a kiss.

A single day is never long enough
Love is more than a single puff,
Every night for you Mom I will always pray
And every moment I wish you a happy Mother's Day.
