How did you find the energy, Mom
To do all the things you did,
To be teacher, nurse and counselor
To me, when I was a kid.
How did you do it all, Mom,
Be a chauffeur, cook and friend,
Yet find time to be a playmate,
I just can’t comprehend.
I see now it was love, Mom
That made you come whenever I’d call,
Your inexhaustible love, Mom
And I thank you for it all.

What “Mother” Means
“Mother” is such a simple word,
But to me there’s meaning seldom heard.
For everything I am today,
My mother’s love showed me the way.
I’ll love my mother all my days,
For enriching my life in so many ways.
She set me straight and then set me free,
And that’s what the word “mother” means to me.
Thanks for being a wonderful mother, Mom!

A Mother Like You
For all the times you’ve been there
from the day I was born
You’ve always gave me courage
to do as I perform
You call to say hello
you send me notes to say you care
And when we are together
a special momentis shared
Forthe many things you’ve done
for all the times ou were there
Helps me to know deep down
how much you really care
Even though I might not say it,
I really appreciate all you do
So powerfully blessed is how I feel
for having a mother like you.
