It’s Your Day, Mom!

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!
With Love and Gratitude!

well Dad, he calls you Marillyn
but I just call you Mom
and to your now-grown grandchildren
it’s Nana you’ve become

back when I was a naughty boy
I’d drive you ’round the bend
you’d spank me with that wooden spoon
but love me to the end

today and every other day
I hope you’ll feel admired
I thank you for the happiness
that you’ve always inspired

of all your names, the best I think
that anyone could call
“epitome of selfless love”
encapsulates them all

– Paul Raworth Bennett
