Mother oh mother

Mother oh mother 
You gave the breath that made me so 

You nurtured the tenderness in my heart 
You gave me a shoulder to cry on, I cried 

Mother oh mother 
You gave me the confidence to believe in me 

You always remained solid as a rock to stand on 
You never lost, hope, faith, I know 

You cradle me from young without feathers 
And to adulthood your warmth is still felt 

Mother oh mother 
You are the comfort I know and trust 

You are the truth in sincerity 
You are the conscience in my thought 

You are the restraint to my unleash 
You  always know to stop me from burning bridges  

Mother oh mother 
You are the strength that sits in me 

You are my heroine of great name 
You are an inspiration from gifted bless 

I will always be in debt as assured
With what gratitude I owe you Mother 

You are and always will be through eternity 
My Mona Lisa...sweet mother 

Mother oh mother
