“Everyday is Mother’s Day”
She is different things to different people;
A simple friend to me;
Her emotions are based on blood;
Just not her own;
For her, life has three purposes;
Two beautiful daughters and her Drew;
Their safety, their love, their happiness;
That is what matters in her world;
After all, for her, everyday is Mother’s Day.
