Happy Mother's Day!

My mother’s love is honest,

She tells the truths I don’t want to hear,

For the right reasons,

Definitely not for fear.


My mother’s eyes are sharp while mine are blind,

She doesn’t need marks to give directions,

She finds things I can’t find at home,

I’ll never have to feel alone.


My mother is the best doctor and lawyer,

She gives more than I ask for,

My health is her concern,

My actions she’ll discern.


My mother’s approval,

Becomes my father’s approval,

Her role is everywhere,

Like an octopus’ hands.


There is a mother in all of us,

But only one mother can handle the above,

She says she wants me to be happy,

That’s all that matters.
