By: Thomas W. Fessenden
M – O – T – H – E – R
M – is for the million things she gave me,
O -means only that she’s growing old,
T – is for the tears she shed to save me,
H – is for her heart of purest gold;
E – is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
R – means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.
