M is for the million things she gave you. (Today’s your chance to give something to her.)

O is only that she’s growing old. (That’s what happens to Mother. One never notices it until one day, she’s a little old lady.)

T is for the tears she shed to save you. (Many’s the tear. Don’t make her cry today.)

H is for her heart of purest gold. (That heart has ever been filled with love for you.)

E is for her eyes, with love-light burning. (Have you ever seen them when deep down inside you, they weren’t filled with love for you?)

R is right—and right she’ll always be. (Who dares to say differently?)
