Thank You Mama


You gave birth to me in kindness
Brought me up with happiness
And taught me righteousness
This is my appreciation Mama,
For all your devotion

Your love so beautiful,
Steadfast and unending;
In all the hardships,
Caring that immense
In times I’d fall
Mama, this is my appreciation
For all your devotion

Your wholeness amazes,
You’ve never taken a grudge
On your children,
Even when they do wrong
You’ve been faithful to us,
When we have and not
Mama, you are the greatest!

Would have lost on many ways…
You’ve guided me always,
My life, your priority
With all the dexterity
This Mama, is my great appreciation
For all your devotion!

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
