Ode to my Mom

Here's to the woman
who gave me my life
Who gave me away
to become a wife.

Who has always listened
when I needed to cry
then offered advice
which went never awry

Who sends me a gift
I don't always expect
but which happens to be
what I need for a lift.

My mom is amazing
she always has been
She works with her heart
and she never gives in.

And now I'm a mom
with two kids of my own
and I need her help still
though I'm married and grown.

My great hope some day
is that I may be
A mother as kind
and as loving as she.
