Number One Mother


She is number one
She is my mother
My one and only
Not like any other

A woman of strength
Just like the lovely rose
A special gift from God
You wouldn't dare to oppose

When she was formed
The mold was broken
She carried her load
And not just a token

A woman that's so full of grace
None can ever take her place
She is number one
She is my mother
