Mother

I applaud your performance, I stand in awe;
On life’s great stage, you were the greatest performer of all.
As the drama of life unfolded,
You played your part to perfection;
And when the final curtain falls,
Mankind will give you a standing ovation.

On this world’s great stage of pretend;
No emmy, no oscar, did you win.
When our eternal rewards are assigned;
Dear Mother, you will be at the head of the line.
I salute you, Mother, Teacher, Friend;
For fulfilling your role daily, through to life’s end.

You were never paid millions for the role you played;
Through each heart-wrenching hour of the day.
I shall never forget the times I was sick;
All night beside my bed you would sit.
And when I was young and going astray;
Only you, dear Mother, refused to turn away.

Yes, I applaud your performance, I am in awe;
On life’s great stage, you were the greatest performer of all.
And as the drama of life unfolded,
You played your part to perfection;
And when the final curtain falls Mother,
Mankind will give you a standing ovation.
