Only One Mother So Amazing
You can only have one mother,
Who is so patient and kind
No other friend in all the world
Only one mother, so amazing
When others forsake you, you can
Turn to your mother who is loving, true and
Kind only one mother, so amazing
She gives and gives and asks for nothing
Sweet memories we recall as we look upon
Her pictures, a face full of sunshine, and
A smile for one and all to see, so amazing
Only one mother can be
Mother you will be dearly missed by all your loved ones. We realize there is only one mother, so amazing.
Rev. Marion Fullard
