I know many people think their mother is the best,
Standing head and shoulders higher - above all the rest.
Hate to be the one to tell you this... It isn't true,
Not unless my perfect mother is your mother, too.
True that my mom cannot cook a meal to save her life,
That she made a better mother than she did a wife,
But she taught us loyalty, compassion, how to share,
Honesty, determination, love (she's lots to spare)
Courage in a crisis, taking time to hold a hand,
Making do when things aren't working out the way you'd planned.
My mom does all that and more and thus, by any test,
I feel confident in claiming, my mom is the best.
