Teacher, builder, and a friend
She is always there for you
She keeps watch all day and night
Making sure that you pull through!

Some are doctor, lawyer, nurse,
Seamstresses, shopper, and bard
Or dealers in real estate
No job is ever too hard.

The all-around perfect mom
Consisting of all these things,
And much, much more than what this
Concocted praise could ever sing!

When earth is no more around
She'll be on that peaceful shore
Still being a great mother
Just exactly like before.
