Dear Mothers...

 Dear mothers,
 In all the little things we do 
that we think they'll forget
We never know which ones they'll remember 
so let's just keep on keeping on!

Don’t give up
Though trust and task
Seems to ask for
More than we thought
Worth each while
Each smile,
For who knows what,
When it is taught
Will with time fulfill
Its bearing
If we labour with purpose true
Someday we may hear them saying
This is what my mom would do
