Dear Mom
We said a prayer for you
to thank the Lord above
For blessing us with a lifetime
of your tenderhearted love.

We thanked God for the caring
You've shown us through the years,
For the closeness we've enjoyed
in time of laughter and of tears.

And so, we thank you from the heart
For all you've done for us
and we bless the Lord for giving us
The best mother there could be.
