Mom â€“ Where do I start?Â Well let me explain, no, there is too much let me sum up. (Okay so I borrowed that one.)Â A rhyme for mom â€“
Â Dries your tears and Holds you near
Shields your face and Gives you grace
Bakes you cake and Helps you bake
Shows you how and Even spells cow
Say not that and Catches your cat
Helps you heal and Makes your meal
Dries your tears and Calms your fears
Holds your place and Pleads your case
Gives you hugs and Chases away bugs
Tucks you in and Cheers your wins
Laughs at jokes and Please donâ€™t smoke
Most of all and She stands tall
As your Mom and Sheâ€™s the bomb
Loves you always and In so very, very, very many and uncountable ways
Â Love you, Mom!
