Mothers Are the Place That We Call Home

Music: The Ash Grove.
Sequenced by Barry Taylor.

Mothers are the place that we call home.
On them we rest our heads and close our eyes.
There's no one else who grants the same soft peace,
Happiness, contentment, sweet release,
Erasing nighttime tears with lullabies,
Restoring the bright sun that makes us bloom.
