Matrons, so dignified and sober
Orderlies, when injury occurs to a child
Therapists, a counselor when needed
Helpers, always willing to lend a hand
Educators, teaching children to live and grow
Rescuers, whenever pets or kids need saving
Saintly, as all mothers are

These are a mother’s lot
To serve and protect everyone she’s got
In her family
And she does it uncannily

A mother’s love
Goes far and above
Normal emotion
Showing her singular devotion

So on this day for mothers
Let us not think of any others
Except for our moms
And sing psalms
Of praise to spark
Glory and fame for our Matriarch
