Mothers Are as Mothers Do

Mothers are as mothers do, and yet
Often they are neighbors, friends, or aunts.
The common thread is love that will endure -
Hardy, patient, generous, and sure,
Embrace beyond all act or circumstance.
Remember them this day with love, and let
Sweet words reverberate within their hearts and dance.
