Ever since D and I have been married,
in my heart a message for you I’ve carried.
Now that Mother’s Day is coming around
I’ve decided it’s time to put some of it down.
I haven’t known you for very long as time goes,
but you are a good mother as everyone and Heaven knows.
How do I know these things are true?
Three wonderful children were guided by you.
D is the one that I’m thinking about –
he is the greatest man without a doubt.
You’ve taught him very well the things he should do.
As a husband and a father he is the very best.
His love, kindness and manliness have stood the test.
All these qualities and many others that he has
are all because of you, a very special lass.
I have always told him he is a very gentle man.
That’s because his mother is a very gentle woman.
At this time I’d like to say something long overdue
for raising such a special son I say thank you.
