There sits "my mom" with graying hair
I wonder "who" could have put it there?
It takes a lot of experience in living
A little of taking -- a lot of giving
I'm glad I was on the taking end
Of all the love and understanding of my "special friend"
You see, Moms aren't always fussy and stern
But it's one of the things we must learn
They're also willing to listen and quite understanding
