Happy Mother’s Day to moms everywhere
You are the best because you are the one to care
Changing diapers, making meals
Listening to every child’s appeals
No one can replace you for you can only be
The mom for the child God has given to thee!
Dandelions are the Flowers for mothers everywhere!

Those runny noses, dirty hands and faces come running
Not ashamed to show that they are coming
To greet the mom, they love with gifts in hand
Hands that just got done playing in the sand
Smiling as they approach your waiting arms
Not having a care as they are free from all alarms!
Dandelions are the Flowers for mothers everywhere!

The next time you see a child running wildly
Carrying those mashed up dandelions lovingly
Extending hand and arm as you await
Enjoying this time of love at your gate
Simply knowing this is such a gift
Giving your heart a wonderful lift!
Dandelions are the Flowers for mothers everywhere!
