Mothers Day Poems and Quotes Mothers Day Quotes and Poems
“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;

“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.
