She’s Special


I have a friend!
She has warm smiles and soothing hands,
And whenever I can’t be brave enough,
She understands.
I have a friend!
She makes me glad like the morning sun,
So whenever I have a joy to share,
She’s the one.
I have a friend!
She makes me popovers, presses my clothes,
And whatever I need that is good for me,
She knows.
I have a friend!
She’s special—like no other,
’Cause she loves me and I love her.
She’s my mother.
