When you take care of Mummy!


When you take care of Mummy she produces a home
A lovely home from the house you give her
A place you will be eager to always go back to
Where smiles are exchanged freely
Surely take good care of Mummy to get a lovely home

When you take care of Mummy she produces meals
A delicious meal from the groceries you give her
A meal you will be eager to always taste again
Where spoons are exchanged freely
Surely take good care of Mummy to get a delicious meal

When you take care of Mummy she produces a baby
A bouncing baby from the sperm you give her
A baby you will be eager to always nurture
Where nappies are exchanged freely
Surely take good care of Mummy to get a bouncing baby

When you take care of Mummy she becomes a helper
A loyal helper from the love you give her
A helper you will be eager to confide in
Where secrets are exchanged freely
Surely take good care of Mummy to get a loyal helper

    Mummies are the joy givers, implementers of any successful family and are apples of their husbands eyes. Very good poem (Report) Reply

    The poem depicts Mummy's roles to the children that she brings forth and to her partner with whom she brings forth the children.It is obvious that the poet admires Mummy.I like the poem and agree with the poet. (Report) Reply

Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
