A Debt to Mother

-- By Bill Ronan

We have a massive debt,
it's one we can't repay
It's a debt that we will carry
to our dying day.

For clothing us when naked
and warming us when cold
For giving us protection
within a loving hold

For teaching us the difference
between what's right and wrong
For soothing out our infant worries
with a softly spoken song

For guiding us through childhood
and opening up our eyes
For leading us to adulthood
with words so often wise

For teaching us with honesty
that we were so unique
For laughing at our silly jokes
and listening when we speak

A debt so large and special
the like there is no other
This debt and so much very more
we owe it to our MOTHER!
