My Mom

I love my mom

Because she will always love me

On and on

I will always love her

Till she’s gone!


I love my mom because 

Even though she doesn’t buy

Me the things I want 

That’s okay!! 

Only thing I want from her 

Is to stay


I love my mom because

On Saturday game days

She always cheers me on

I love her because

Each game day

She brings me food


My mom is no like the rest 

If there is a test of beauty 

She passes the test

She has more then beauty she is fabulous

Glorious and special… so you want to know

Who she is?

She is my mom!!!
