It's a difficult task that a mother’s assigned –

To always be loving and gentle and kind …

For there surely are times when she’d much rather be.

A little less busy, a little more free …

But you’ve never quit, Mom, just because you were tired.

And these are the reasons you’re loved and admired …

For you’ve given your heart and your “motherly touch:

To your home and your family who loves you so much!
