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.
