A Mommy Is a Person

A Mommy is a Person
Who loves someone so much
That she has a baby that she
Falls in love with upon first touch

A Mommy is a Person
Who knows just what to do
When you're scared, or cold, or sad
Or sick in bed with the flu

A Mommy is a Person
Who ties your shoes, and makes your lunch
And teaches you how to do it yourself
Who calls you sugar, sweetie and honey bunch

A Mommy is a Person
Who made elves and fairies real
She is that special person
Who taught you how to feel

A Mommy is a Person
Who bandages scrapes on knees
And sews up toys
Who taught you when to say "thank you-please"

A Mommy is a Person
Who wakes you up with her voice
And kisses you asleep, goodnight
One for each girl, and the boys

A Mommy is a Person
Who teaches you your ABC's
And 123's
And how to read newspaper funnies

A Mommy is a Person
Who reads her children books
Who hugs you because she knows you're sad
Even if you give her the happy looks

A Mommy is a Person
Who becomes Mom once you're older
But, not too old to feed you, or give you medicine
Or be your crying shoulder

A Child is a Person
Who loves their Mommy very much
But can't say, but can hug it
Say "I love you" in a touch

A Mommy is a Person
Who never sleeps, and is always there
Who'll always be there
And always care

A Mommy is a Person
Who should be hugged and loved and cherished
Every day of the year
But especially today . . .

Happy Mommy's Day
