Mother Is Gold


(For Mothers everywhere)



If perchance I was asked

By a face open or masked

What makes a mother kind or good?

My answer would go beyond her food.


Charity, they say, begins at home

Untrained children will always roam

Mama Mia, you’re the best

You are the strength under my vest.


Countless sunshine eyes have seen

Many places legs have been

Like the hen protects her chicks

Mama Mia, you bear my kicks.


Your little love

Your little care

The little pains you bear for me;

Your little smiles

Your little cries

All the prayers you pray for me;

Your little pains will bring big gains

Because your prayers bless me like rains.


Mother is Gold

My Mum is Bold

Mama Mia, you are the BEST!
