Happy day to be
Your mother,
Your mama,
and sometimes mommie.
Happy day to be
the teacher, the fixer, the driver-
the washer and kisser and reader.
Happy day to be
tripping over love everywhere I step
Happy day to be
special to you,
silly children,
who are so special to me.
Happy day to be
extra loved, extra hugged, extra kissed
Happy day to be
exactly what I want,
with exactly who I want—
a mother to you.
