You can only have one mother. Loving, kind and true,

No other friend in all, the world will be so true to you.

For all her love and kindness,

She asked for nothing in return,

If all the world deserted us.

To our Mother we could turn.

For those of you who have a mother,

Treasure her with care, for you will never know her value, till you see that she Is not there. To hear her voice, to see her smile, to sit and talk with her awhile, To be together in the same old way, Would be our dearest wish today.
