It's a Hallmark holiday, some folks say,
But why not honor Mom's, for at least one day.
Three women were Mom's to me through the years,
Each leaving too soon and for that I've shed tears.
My Other-Mother Betty, Step Mom Ev & my real Mom Pauline,
Each left me with fond memories & for a day, they each should be Queen.
So, on this day I will smile and remember them,
Each one leaving me with memories, precious as a gem.
And those gems are like a treasure,
And most memories bring such pleasure.
So, here's to the three Mothers who have passed through my years,
With Forget-Me-Not Flowers from my yard, I'll say Cheers!
