I thank you Mother for your love
You've been my teacher and my guide,
Years of memories I hold so dear,
I still remember the falling tear.
Mother your life wasn't all that glorious
Yet you fought hard to care for me,
When hurt and problems came our way,
You talked to God, He made the day.
I thank you Mother for the gift of life
For the prayers you prayed each night,
A mother's love never grows old,
She gives and gives with a heart of gold.
Mom, I celebrate your Special Day
To show you thanks for all you've done,
Many deep waters you have been through,
But I thank God, He saw you through.
