Mother dearest, we’ll never really know,

how you can love us so.

Greedy, and needy I’ve been,

yet a faltering of your love cannot be seen.

Unbroken, steadfast and very strong,

a mother’s love is never wrong.

Caring, understanding, always giving,

the greatest person of them all,

the one who brought you here and into living.

Thank you mother, for all you’ve done,

you will always be the number one.

Though I no longer hear your beating heart from inside,

I can feel it’s warmth from the outside.

I wish you a happy day of mothers,

and I hope you know it is very true:

I am very grateful for the love with which you smother,

and know that I love you.
