Flower for My Mother

    Flower for My Mother

    A flower for my mother

    Is the nicest kind of thing

    That I can ever think of,

    That I can ever bring.

    My mother says she loves it.

    I knew it all the while …

    From the way it makes her hug me,

    The way it makes her smile.
