Happy Mums Day!


The rule of thumb

Says you're my mum

You say you can't

Be a cry-sant(h)


That's right! Youre not

Grown in a pot

But sweet you smell

Pretty as well


Years have gone by

What's changed? Oh my!

Nothins the same

A whole different game


A little older

A little bolder

Youre much more wise

Much softer eyes


You like to kid

Bout what you did

You love to share

N you always care


We feel so blessed

You gave your best

To all your clan

Each one began


Their lives on track

You had a knack

A way of giving

A way of living


Youre an example

And you gave ample

Advice to us

Yes, we could trust


Your every word

We felt assured

That-if we complied

Wed all get by


 See what youve done?

Theres more than one

Here of your brood

That gives gratitude


For what you gave him

Our homes a haven

Because of you

And a refuge too


A big thank you

From one who loves you:

A sprout thats grown

In your very own home


Mum, you gave seeds

Pulled out the weeds

So wed be strong

Taught right from wrong


Our time to grow

And then well show

That good seeds bloom

Just give them room


You gave us space

To run the race

Now check the time

We crossed the (finish) line.
