To Mum

You brushed my hair and styled it in a bun,

Made me smile if sad when the day was done.


You kissed my cheek to show your love abounds,

Mum, you never let me down.


Because of your love, 

Me and my siblings were taught,

How to approach life in attitude and thought,

In everything we do and did,

Said and thought is tinged by it.


You tell us of the hard times you have been through,

And worked hard to hope we avoid them too.

Worked hard for the family the best role model,

You gave time and affection, nothing too much trouble.


We aspire to be as strong as you.

Thank you Mum for being you.
