Hugs to the Mothers who hugged us tight
Who held our hands and kissed us good-night
Hugs to the Mothers who are in our dreams
To some are icons, heroes, maybe even our memes!
Hugs to the Mothers whose lessons remain
Firmly and deeply entrenched in our brain
Our mothers, our grandmas, our aunts, and our friends
Remain our care-givers straight through till our ends
Hugs to the Mothers who have long since gone
Who may not be here with us – but whose memory still lives on
The teacher, the nurse, the provider, the calm
So blessed to have known you and to have called you my Mom!
