A Salute to Mothers

      Mothers come in all sizes and descriptions it's true,
      But please know we're thankful for each one of you.
      Some have many children, some have only one,
      But each mother gave life to a daughter or son.

      You may feel neglected and you may be, it's true,
      But at least for today we want to thank you.
      You not only gave birth but you guided and led,
      And you saw that your children were clothed and were fed.

      You taught us each night to kneel down and pray,
      And things that you told us we remember today.
      You may not always be "with it" or dressed all in style,
      But my, you are lovely when at us you smile.

      Some of you mothers are grandmothers too,
      So your days for teaching children are certainly not through.
      Grandchildren love grandmothers and need them you see,
      To love them and teach them and their friend to be.

      Thank God you're a mother and enjoy today,
      And know that we mean all the good things we say.
      We love you and need you every day of the year,
      And we're glad to express it when Mother's Day is here.

      We tell God we're thankful for each one of you,
      But so often we're neglectful and forget to tell you.
      So as children or grandchildren or as husbands too,
      We say and we mean, "MOTHERS, WE LOVE YOU."
