  1. To My Mother
    Poet: Unknown

    You filled my days with rainbow lights,
    Fairytales and sweet dream nights

    A kiss to wipe away my tears,
    Gingerbread to ease my fears

    You gave the gift of life to me,
    And then in love, you set me free

    I thank you for your tender care,
    For deep warm hugs and being there

    I hope that when you think of me,
    A part of you, you'll always see



  2. I'll Tell You
    Poet: Lindsay Howard

    Who is it always comforts me
    When I've a bruise or scratch?
    Who is it always helps me out
    Whenever my trousers need a patch.

    Who is it often laughs at me
    And says that I'm a clown?
    But I'm as sure as sure can be
    She'll never let me down.

    Who is it often laughs at me
    Much more than any other?
    If you do not already know,
    I'll tell you, it's my Mother.



  3. Mother
    Poet: Harry Coughaneur

    My Mother is just like the sun,
    She's always warm and bright,
    And I know now that she's the one
    Who makes my burdens light.

    As long as there are days and years,
    There will never be another
    Who can alleviate my fears
    As well as my sweet Mother.



  4. Mother
    Poet: Marion K. Sollanych

    A strain of music fills the air
    Its melody is sweet and fair
    In lowly hut and mansion grand
    This song is shared by every land.

    And yet this song has but one word
    More blest than any every heard
    I love it more than any other
    The dearest, sweetest name of "Mother".



  5. My Mother
    Poet: Tiny Stoufer

    Through good luck or woe,
    The sweetest pal I know,
    My Mother!

    The smile she gave
    Made me good and brave,
    My Mother!

    When I was small she rocked me there,
    Now she sits alone in that rocking chair,
    My Mother!

    Her tear drops fall for her babies grown tall,
    She's still my silver-haired pal,
    My Mother!



  6. A Mother's Love
    by Helen Steiner Rice

    A Mother's love is something that no one can explain,
    It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain,
    It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may
    For nothing can destroy it or take that love away . . .



  7. O My Mother
    by Clara Ertling

    O my Mother is so sweet
    She is so graceful and so fine,
    She makes my bed and buys my clothes,
    I hope she will always be mine.



  8. Nobody Knows
    Poet Unknown

    Nobody knows of the work it makes
    To keep the home together.
    Nobody knows of the steps it takes,
    Nobody knows - but Mother.



  9. The Truest Friend
    Washington Irving

    A mother is the truest friend we have,
    When trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us
    When adversity takes the place of prosperity
    When friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us
    When troubles thicken around us,
    Still will she cling to us,
    And endeavor by her kind precepts
    And counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness,
    And cause peace to return to our hearts.
